We stopped and took some pictures, but the beach is right up against the big parking lot with people coming and going. The beach looks better in pictures. Try Cabot's Landing off the Trail for beauty and serenity.

We were traveling the Cabot trail and ran across this wonderful little beach. Had a great time just wading in the waves. Wish we had spent more time here.

Excellent stop and place to climb some rocks and enjoy the sound of waves. I stopped several times, just to listen, sit on a rock and enjoy. The waterfall is fantastic.
