This tiny beach in Gloucester has crystal-clear waters and is one of the best beaches in Massachusetts. Half Moon Beach gets its name from its obvious shape. The beach is part of Stage Fort Park. Lifeguards are on site from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Memorial Day right through to the end of the summer. Click here for more photos, hours, directions and pricing.
The waters are clear and blue, look at the view from the rocks.
