Is Good Harbor on Your List of the World's Best Beaches?
Doctor Beach -- who bills himself as "the foremost beach expert" -- just announced his 2012 listing of the world's best beaches. Topping the list was Coronado Beach, which is a very nice spot in San Diego. We're the first to admit, we're a bit biased, but we ask you...is there no better beach than Good Harbor? It's convenient to Boston and even closer to the restaurants and shops in downtown Gloucester and Rockport. It has awesome views of the unique twin lighthouses on Thatcher Island and the picturesque home of the bluff overlooking the beach. It has an island you can walk to, a tidal river you can drift in and rocks you can climb. It has a footbridge, dunes, clean sandy beach and gentle waves. And there's a really great B&B just steps away. We don't know if Doctor Beach has ever visited Good Harbor -- but if he did, we think we just might make it onto his list. Is it on yours? We think it's a safe bet that the "Roy Girls" from western Mass would agree -- this is one of their Good Harbor Beach photos.
