If you have a pass and no other place to go this is a nice beach. The facilities have been upgraded (I use the term loosely - means they got a new portapotty). But the view can't be beat. It does get crowded and depending on tides/moons it can be a tough spot to find a good place to spread... More

Peggoty is a small beach that gets very crowded because its close to the harbor. Lots of parking and it now has outdoor showers. Need a Town of Scituate Beach Sticker to park in the lot, no ;arking on the side streets.

Small beach with lots of soft sand, rocks for kids to climb and go crabbing on. No bells and whistles here just a port a potty and an occassional visit from the ice cream truck. You can also rent paddle boards from a small stand in the parking lot. Only a few public parking spots need a beach sticker otherwise.... More

If you are visiting Scituate, you will need to go to the Town hall to obtain a visitor's pass to enjoy any of Scituate's beaches.

Good place for a dip or to watch surfing off point. Parking is limited to locals but if you park downtown you can walk. I'm a local but people who are willing to walk usually are good people.

Sandy with good waves. Safe beach for children. Unfortunately, there is no parking in the beach parking lot without a town beach sticker, which means a fairly long walk from town parking. No bathhouse or concessions. Port-a-potty.

Sandy, good walking, lots of room to spread out. Watch the surfers year round. In summer, dog owners bring their dogs before 9 am for off leash socializing and swimming.
