Great beach. Went off season to walk on. Love that they had seats up along the wall to just sit and watch the ocean from.

In the lovely town of Manchester. 10 minutes walk from the train station. Gets Crowded in the summer. Limited parking. Alternative use the one hour train service from Boston/North Station. 10 $ one way (sometimes weekend special discount deals)

Beautiful clean beach in a beautiful setting. The parking is pricey and a long walk from the beach, but worth the trip.

A beautiful beach in a quaint town. this past winter (2017-2018) saw major Nor'Easters, and as a result, the beach was washed away! It will return over time, but for now, at high tide, there is very little room for people.
