Overview

Rockport's Breakwater was rebuilt in the winter of 2015. It's now possible to walk along it's relatively flat surface to the end (@1/8 mile.) It's a terrific spot to view the harbor, Motif #1, and sailboats. Or, just to enjoy the great outdoors. Proper footwear is a necessity.

If you visit Rockport, be sure to walk on the breakwater at the end of Bearskin Neck. It is an easy walk on the rocks and great for fun photos.

We enjoy the peacefulness. Just to stand and look out to sea is amazing. If you go in the fall, be sure and bring a jacket as the breeze can feel really cold if you are not used to it.

Beautiful place, very safe to walk on the rocks. Just be careful on the windy days and don't wear a hat, I lost mine, it fell in between the rocks, very deep, it was unreachable.

Never miss a walk to here....rain or shine it never disappoints and if you brave enough to take the rock walk its well worth it. Every shop along the route is interesting and different. Great for all ages

The breakwater is amazing (it's 8/10 of a mile not 1/8 as stated in description). Lighthouse was closed when we visited, but it's so low that the view is probably not much improved vs. the observation deck.

Depending on the day, there can be many people walking here. It's a beautiful place to see, feel, and smell the ocean. Lots of places around to get something to eat after.

The walk is a little tricky. Not recommended for elderly or someone without good balance. With that said, it is fun, you feel like you are walking out into the water. Sit a spell if you like or just return to the mainland.
