Lovely beach on a cold January day

We went to the singing beach on a cold January day. Very brisk and beautiful, wandering along the sand with few people about. Needed to wrap up warmly. I can imagine it being... read more

Don't understand the reviews for this place. It was our first visit. Nice beach but nothing special as there are similarly nice beaches and views throughout the New England coast. Was full of dogs, a real dog lovers paradise. Took a nice long walk but didn't hear any "singing".. Also I understand the place is very expensive to park. Why... More

Not a big beach, but a beautiful one. Not an easy place to park, but off-season there is a way to park. Dog friendly off season, people friendly every season. When I go to this beach I feel the music of life in the way the locals take care and guard this beauty. Tread softly and scuff your feet to... More

A beautiful beach for all times of the year. Lots of dogs running around. A relaxing locals scene where everyone feels welcome and gets grreeted by dogs and owners alike.

One of my favorite beaches on the North Shore. Off-season you can park in the lot on the end of Beach Street otherwise get there early for street parking and a short walk. Benches are above for a great view. It's a wonderful beach.

Singing beach is the perfect spot to chill out and soak in the sun. My bestfriend and I headed there early September, and the water is cold but refreshing nevertheless (I recommend a visit on a hot day, this way you will actually swim). There is free parking if you're willing to walk a mile or two, but we opted... More

We went to the singing beach on a cold January day. Very brisk and beautiful, wandering along the sand with few people about. Needed to wrap up warmly. I can imagine it being packed in the summer. Only singing was being done by me trying to warm up but if in Manchester by the Sea have to pay a visit.... More

Singing beach is an excellent beach in Manchester Massachusetts. If you walk on the beach with out socks or shoes, you can hear the sand whispering. Its really cool. Its a really packed beach in the summer too.

Really liked. I imagine is a great place to go in summer. It was a brisk but sunny day so not many people out the beach very scenic and it was beautiful and clean. The drive there was great as the fall colors abounded. I couldnt hardly keep my eyes on the road the trees were so beautiful.
