A beautiful beach in a quaint town. this past winter (2017-2018) saw major Nor'Easters, and as a result, the beach was washed away! It will return over time, but for now, at high tide, there is very little room for people.

Singing beach is a favorite spot in Mass. I lived in Boston for nearly 8 years, and have visited at least once a year during the last decade. This beach is among my favorite places around, and favorite beach outside the Caribbean. It’s located in...More

I had been here years before in the off-season and walked my dog on the beach, but I went back while in town to see whether it had changed. It's a nice beach, but very small. I'm not that impressed by the 'squeaking' sand, the...More

The series of storms in March (2018) pounded Singing Beach and left it a shadow of its former self. At high tide, the beach is tiny, and, subsequently, on a weekend day people are pressed together uncomfortably close and crowded. The beach is only about...More

Arrived here on a Tuesday in the middle of June. Parking lot not even half full. Sign at entrance to lot not very clear. (See pic) Arrived back at car only to find a $35 parking ticket. Welcome to Manchester-don't-come-to-the-Sea. Won't be back.

I took the pleasant 10 minute walk from the station to see the beach which is small but clean and pretty. There was a fee of $7 if you were under 65 and I’m pretty sure there was also a parking fee. There were some...More

Not really, only a few. We've been to wingaersheek this summer as well and didn't have any issues there either.
