Such a Gem in the off season. While we still havent visited in peak season we love it here. So much fun to fly a kite, take a walk, and enjoy the sand/water on a beautiful spring day. Worth the trip.

I have seen on line reviews that rate this beach to be one of the best in New England. I would say it lives up to the ratings.

The place is about two miles from my house and it's been about two years since I've been there. And the place needs to update.

Another visual treat is... More
