This beach is definitely worth the day trip especially towards the more quiet north end side. The beach is well maintained with clean soft sand, descent bath houses, some restaurant, shops and ice cream stores especially an on the southern end. There's plenty of free parking also if you don't mind a bit of a search. Depending on the air... More

I needed to get away from Boston. I wanted to hear the ocean, smell the sea. Revere Beach, America's Oldest Public Beach, fit the bill. Public transport is a hop, skip away. The ocean gently lapped the shore and the air had just the right amount of salt tang. It was a great walk--I felt safe as a solo female... More

It is so sad that such long and Nice piece of beach land is so badly kept and uninteresting! Most of time it is dirty and there are just two public restrooms for the entire beach area (almost 3 miles). The two great things are : parking is free and they have Sand festival in the summer! If I was... More

Free parking curbside. Plenty of beach front. Plenty of nice sand. Always something interesting going on. (Sand castle contests, etc.) The planes taking off from Logan, Parasailing, and paddle boarding. And of course Kellys roast beef and other eateries. I love the gazebos, there's always shade and a breeze there for eating lunch or just sitting and talking. you can... More

My sister and I visited this beach on our trip to Boston this summer. Although this beach is huge, the area is very pleasant and the waves are decent, we did not account for the sea shells, rocks and garbage lying around the beach. If you do not have beach shoes it is quite unpleasant walking around in the sand,... More

My favorite place to spend a summer day is Revere Beach. There is plenty of free parking right along the boulevard, and many places to eat nearby. It is also accessible by the MBTA blue line at Revere Beach station and also Wonderland station. The beach is very clean and the water is very blue and nice for swimming because... More

I was happy to find this beach right off the subway. There were many large clam shells and other types of smaller shells on the beach as well as crab shells and seaweed. A lot for kids to explore. Airplanes also fly close by on approach to the airport. I was however dismayed at the amount of trash also on... More

If you aren't a vagrant or drug dealer then you may not fit in here. This is NOT a scenic beach. It's dirty. Trash everywhere. It's a decent place for a run if that's what you're looking for. Nice long, wide, paved "boardwalk" works well for that. Go during daylight hours.
