Rock Hall’s Ferry Park is a small town swimming beach, with magnificent sunsets across the Chesapeake Bay and a great view of Baltimore’s sparkling night lights on the opposite side of the Bay. 

Directions: Once in Rock Hall continue west on Rock Hall Avenue, then south (left) on Beach Road

The Rock Hall, MD, beach has a small boardwalk, about a block long, from one end of the beach to other. The walkway is sprinkled with a few benches.

It has no lifeguard or facilities, although there is a port-potty. A couple gazebos are perched on the grassy side of the beach, but it’s a small picnic area.

A number of small homes face the beach on the other side of Beach Road. There’s no lifeguard and no dogs are allowed.

It’s a quiet place, except for Pirates and Wenches Fantasy Weekend in August. That’s when the beach fills up with hundred of people dressed as pirates and watch dinghies made to look like pirate boats land on the beach.

Normally, the beach fills with families.

The beach is protected from Chesapeake Bay waves and erosion by rock jetties (sections of rock in a long pile).

There’s parking for about 20 cars next to the Rock Hall beach and the beach is free.
