The Rockland Breakwater is a mile-long jetty built of massive blocks of granite. The breakwater itself is a scenic destination for hikers, but local anglers value it as a prime spot to fish from shore for saltwater species. This is a highly recommended site for families with children because of the endless variety of marine life, the magnificent scenery, and the lighthouse at the very end of the breakwater. Motels and inns are plentiful in Rockland. Key Species: mackerel, striped bass, bluefish, cunner.

A very popular scenic trail. We have hiked it many times. It is a short hike from our timeshare at the Samoset Resort. The breakwater is made from blocks of granite so be careful, especially with young children. A high tide in a storm washs over the breakwater. Avoid this. The rocks can be icey and slippery in the winter. Sometimes the lighthouse is open to visitors.
