Got there very early and they were raking and cleaning it. So much to do in Salisbury from running to biking and hiking.

We stopped by here quickly after a whale watch nearby in Newburyport. We hadn't been for years. We were instantly greeted by trash all over the beach. People buried diapers and wipes, cigarette butts littered the sand, and everything else the beach go-ers didn't carry out with them. There are high building structures that line the beach with no trespassing... More

We got shut out of the Salisbury Beach State Reservation today so we headed to the other end in Salisbury. There are a number of bars and "attractions" fronting/near the beach, a number of them seem to have seen better days. There are no facilities, but several places to get fast food. The beach itself is nice, clean, well-tended and... More

Really nice quiet wide and sandy beach. State beach is very clean and has great waves or wading area when the tide comes in--great for families or couples..stay away from the tacky arcade area unless you like that sort of entertainment--fun to drop by for a soft serve ice cream or other snack.

My family has been coming to Salisbury for over 50 years and although it has changed greatly over the years, it remains an old favorite.

Unfortunately this is not a family friendly beach. Very little to do for the children. The food is expensive and other than Willy's Candy Shop and Joe's Playland, I wouldn't go there at all. The public bathrooms are well hidden behind the police station

Nice beach and easy to find. Lots of restaurants and dance places right on the beach. Pretty clean and lots of big waves.

We've been going to this beach for years. It's a beautiful beach that is easy to get to for a day trip from Worcester. Entry fees have increased and it now costs $14 to enter the park, which seems a bit high. Bathrooms were clean. Construction is underway on the jetty at the south end of the beach. On a... More
