A local secret, sandy Crescent Beach is hidden away on Ginn Point, a narrow finger of land poking into the Atlantic Ocean south of the village. Once home to an inn whose guests arrived by steamboat, most of Crescent Beach is now owned by summer cottages.
Owls Head State Park
According to local lore, Owls Head derived its name from 18th-century sailors who thought this headland resembled the head of an owl with a white brick lighthouse perched on a cliff high above Penobscot Bay. Volunteers from Friends of Rockland Harbor Lights staff both the 162-year-old lighthouse and the keeper’s house, in which you’ll find a museum and gift shop.
Birch Point Beach State Park (Lucia Beach)
You’d be hard pressed to find a nicer spot to enjoy a lobster dinner than this quiet sandy beach overlooking Penobscot Bay. Thanks to the rocky headlands at either end of the beach, the surf is gentle for swimming (if you can stand the cold water). Bring your fishing rod and cast for striped bass and mackerel.
