Parson's Beach is a great, wide beach, and kept uncrowded by the relative lack of parking. If you can find a place to park along Parson's Beach Road, you are in luck and will enjoy this beach a lot.

Parking is very limited but beyond that it is really pretty, feels somewhat secluded because you can't see the road from the beach, and the rocks all over the beach make for some great photos. It's very large and walkable, too. Definitely prefer this to...More

It is privately owned but the owners share the beach if you are respectful. Beautiful strip of beach, very VERY limited parking (maybe 15 cars parallel), but it is worth the quiet, rocky, salty privacy. Travel down a field and tree lined road to get...More

Very little parking. The beach itself is not very large. Lots of debris n seaweed was there. the parking area was more fun for the kids.

This is a great Beach! Water meets sand. Sunshine abounds. I like the beach. Also, rosehips. And there's a seagull other there.
