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

Where to start? We are from out of state and found this beach seriously lacking. First there was a 15-20 min wait just to get into the park. When we paid the $15 out of state fee we really expected this to be a nice place. There is plenty of parking and a lot of access to the beach areas.... More

I was taken here by a good friend this past weekend. I had never been to this beach, and was really surprised just how nice it was. There was plenty of parking ($9) and a pretty easy walk to the beach itself. We camped out near the jetties so we could see the ocean side, and all the boats coming... More

This beach is cute it's nothing spectacular but the water is beautiful. Came here on a Sunday it was crowded but not bad for 2pm. I will definitely come back and spend more time on the beach instead of walking around.

dIt is not the Salisbury beach of yesteryear. It could be a lot cleaner and the opportunities to make it so much better have not been used. Business after business has closed down. It is a very sad place but still a beach is a beach and that is the best part.

I practically live here and it's such a comfortable, friendly beach. The views are lovely and it's monitored by state police so it's safe. You'll see police ride their horses along the beach. The fireworks in the summer are great. Not too over-crowded.

I took my family of 5 to Salisbury Beach MA this summer and was so impressed with the miles of wide long clean beach. Not rocky cliffs but beaches you can walk and play on. Great beach !!!! Highly recommend.

This beach is nice. We came here on a whim and found it relaxing to walk along the Atlantic, surprising frigid this time of year. We parked in front of the pizza vendors and walked south to the state park, which had plenty of parking and restrooms and changing facilities with a boardwalk out to the beach. North of the... More

I have been camping here every year since I was a kid. My folks, kids and grand kids always have a blast with us! We enjoy the easy accessibility to the Merrimack river where it pours into the Atlantic. Tide pool discoveries and sand castle building, enhance our sunbathing, as we watch boats of all kinds pass through. Kite flying... More

If you want a deserted beach, this is your place. Looks like it used to be a happening kind of place, but it needs a lot of TLC and updating now. Beach had quite a bit of litter, and was quite deserted. The entire area just looked very tired and in need of a major makeover. No issue finding parking,... More
