“Beautiful! Clean, quiet, peaceful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

The only negative is the lack of public restrooms. Otherwise there is nothing not to like about this beautiful beach.

“LOVELOVELOVE Watch Hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

The parking is less than desired, but the beach and fort is breathtaking. It takes quite a walk to reach the fort- but is it ever worth it. Watch Hill is one of New Englands finest beaches!!!

“Beautiful and Relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We had an amazing day! The beach was clean and peaceful and not crowded. The water was crystal clear and refreshing. I also feel there was a nice crowd of people here... everyone was very considerate and respectful of the other beach goers. At more popular public beaches I find there are loud and obnoxious people that don't really have good beach etiquette. This beach is a bit out of the way and I find that you'll usually find true beach lovers at these types of off the beat and path type of places. This is now one of my favorite beaches in New England.

“Excellent Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Once you get to the beach you can relax. Getting there is another story. The parking is limited (2 lots where the parking fee fluctuates; $20, $25,$30 or 2 hr. street parking), If you want to drop off people and then park you need to be aware of the CSO (Not friendly). The days of common courtesy and a helping hand are long gone from Watch Hill. Once you are at the beach you can enjoy the water and the waves and forget about the trek to the beach

“East Beach Watch Hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Some responders are confusing East Beach Watch Hill with East Beach Charlestown. Both are very nice.

East Beach Watch Hill is owned by the abutting property owners but they very graciously allow the public to use it.
