We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Craigville Beach. We paddled along the edge of the surf all the way along to the river estuary. We enjoyed all the wildlife especially sitting quietly watching the birds feed. It was easy to get right away from everybody....More

Great beach for the family. Water was nice and warm. Awesome sand bar while tide was low. August had a few jelly fish, but a lot of people still swimming.

We had a great time at Craigville Beach! Large beach, wide and deep enough to be able to spread out and be comfortable. Wasn’t terribly crowded on a weekday in August. Parking was plentiful and convenient. The water was so nice, my son had a...More

By far one of the best beaches in Massachusetts! The water is super warm and tolerable. You'll likely be warmer inside the water than out. Went with our 3 year old and he enjoyed himself. Very easy to access, no traffic jam in or out....More

An unexpectedly warm and enjoyable beach. I was expecting colder water since it's on the Atlantic side, but the water was quite nice. The beach was busy but not crowded. Parking could be an issue, though there is a lot right on the beach but...More

We enjoyed this clean and beautiful beach with our extended family. The waves at the time we went definitely called for a close watch of our younger, and less experienced swimmers in our group. Parking was free after 5 pm on the day that we...More
