Brown's Bank a freak of Nature, a 1 mile square sugar sand and hard packed bottom of the ocean that' miraculously appears as the tide turns in the approach to Plymouth Harbor, for those who have enjoyed it for years locals mostly a hidden Gem, I still think there is a shuttle run in the summer, it's a magical journey...

Simply the best beach in Plymouth when it is there All controlled by the tide Soft sand great people and tons of fun You must have a boat to get there.One downfall is the tide does not always cooperate with your plans for the day

We are faithful visitors every other weekend to this boaters paradise. If the tides worked in our favor, believe me it would be every weekend.
