A fairly wide, long stretch of fine/clean sand within walking distance of the train station. Parking spots are limited and marked specific for residents and non, so be careful. Such a dog friendly area where owners are courteous and careful about the comings and goings...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.

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...More
