Admit it: It’s one of the most beautiful places to catch the sunset around. The harbor can be still as glass sometimes, and though it can get buggy for about 20 minutes after the sun dips behind the hills on the other side, it’s one of our absolute favorite places to wrap up the day. Grab a pizza, or get fancy and bring fixings for tacos, maybe a little wine if you’re discrete. Four star seating if you bring your own chair. Awesome.
We also love Niles in general because it’s a great place to take the kids–with the gentle waves and an interesting parade of boats going by, it’s a bit easier to handle compared to, say, Good Harbor’s sometimes chaotic crowds.
For us, Niles Beach in East Gloucester is totally funky fresh–especially at sunset.
