Great beach just over the bridge from Scituate harbor. Easy access and parking. Close to stores ,restaurants and main street for any needs you may have for your beaching enjoyment.

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.

If you find yourself on the South Shore in Scituate, this isn't a bad summertime option. It's a good-sized beach for getting some sun. It's not the best for swimming, as the seaweed is pretty bad. Also, the parking is only for Scituate residents with a pass. Otherwise, you have to park about 3/4 mile away at a municipal lot.... More
