A Local’s Look at Rock Hall Beach

The Beach at First Glance

Beach Road takes you directly to the oceanfront parking at this lovely Kent County beach. The small strip of sand, surrounded by manmade stone barriers on each end, makes you feel as though you’re entering a secluded cove. These quaint stone formations actually protect and calm the waters within, making it the perfect swimming beach, especially for younger children. Visit this tranquil site to complete your relaxing getaway.

Enjoy Some Thoughtful Touches

This beach also provides a few extra amenities to enjoy during your excursion on the Eastern Shore. Escape into the cool shade in one of the covered pavilions. Use the onsite grill to prepare a delicious lunch for the family. Then, you can set up at the picnic tables to enjoy your meal off the sand. Do all of this while gazing out at the scenic view of boats dropping anchor on the deep, blue waters.

An Evening Excursion

The beachfront parking isn’t just great for easy access to the shore. When evening rolls around, you’ll want to claim a spot overlooking the water to view one of the most gorgeous sunsets on the Chesapeake Bay. Gaze as the fiery colors of the sky cast their reflection on the still waters. Then, when you think the spectacle is over as the sun dips under the horizon, the sky becomes dotted with stars in its place. An evening sunset viewing at this fantastic beach is truly one of the best things to do in Rock Hall, MD.
