Salisbury Beach is a 3.5 mile long, sandy beach. It is anchored by the Salisbury State Reservation. The Reservation has bathrooms and a campground. This is an ocean beach with beautiful rolling waves and a great space for swimming and sunbathing. Try to go there at low tide when there is plenty of beach. It is staffed by lifeguards. The...

Salisbury Beach is one of the best kept secrets ever. It never gets written up as one of the best beaches in Massachusetts. But it is. There are atleast 5 miles of beach, great for walking, pizza and clam stands if you choose, but there are also several very wonderful restaurants; Seaglass and Capri Grille.

Willey's candy & ice cream store in business approx.75 yrs. top quality. There is not an awful lot to do in the way of shopping or dining at the beach need to go into the town a bit.

The seashore/beach itself is a way under rated beach. Long and beautiful and clean. If you enter the beach from the amusement park center, it may be more congested but you will have access to easy parking, rest rooms and old fashion food stands, arcades and shops.. Find an way in heading north a bit, and you will have a... More

Great new restaurants at the Pavillion, summer entertainment, pizza, fried dough, ice cream and fireworks in the center, as well as discount shops for all your beach needs.

Watching the sunrise every morning on Salisbury beach is spectacular!! The water is Crystal clear, dogs are permitted on the private beach. The restaurants are fabulous and within walking distance from the beach houses. Fire pits allowed in the sand inside the fences. Steam crabs and lobsters outside your deck. Didn't get any better..

Beautiful long beach. It has a great past but needs improvements. The improvements are coming--new bathrooms will be built right next to the beach, storefront improvement is coming, a new police station will be built. It's a gorgeous beach for walking and swimming or just wading or sunning. There are a few good places to eat like SeaGlass and SurfSide... More

Unfortunately the glory days of this beach are gone. It's rundown. Saw boarded up storefronts, houses and apartment buildings. The so - called "comfort station" public restrooms are disgusting, dirty, plugged sinks and a stench that could kill an elephant. I found no comfort in the " comfort station". This place needs the Commonwealth of Mass. To come in and... More

The sea is my most favorite place in the world to be. Salisbury Beach became one of my favorite destinations for family fun and, just as easily, my place of solitude. The beach on the non-reservation side boasts little summer condos, cottages and an overall feeling of welcome and freedom. The sand is rather fine and the beach is usually... More
