In the lovely town of Manchester. 10 minutes walk from the train station. Gets Crowded in the summer. Limited parking. Alternative use the one hour train service from Boston/North Station. 10 $ one way (sometimes weekend special discount deals)
My husband and I went here around sunset. It says it closes at 7 but there was no one to stop us, and plenty of ppl still at the beach. You cant park right at the beach because the really regulated residents only. It was...More
Their word for tourist must be idiot. Parking all day $25..You have to walk ridiculous long mile or more to get to beach.
It is pretty but small...and want another $7 to just walk on beach.
It is a scam. Locals want to keep for...More

Have been visiting this beach since I was a child. It is small and lovely. I don't mind the fee as the beach is so clean and well maintained along with life guards to make sure it's chaos free. Look around at all the trash...More
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

We visited Singing Beach in early April, so we were able to park at the lot right near the beach. However, I know there were suggestions to park down at the train station which was a short walk to the beach. I think it was a public lot as there were stores and coffee shops down there. You could drop your stuff and crew down at the turn around and then park the car. Sorry I couldn't be more help. Enjoy!
I can't count, because I titled Day 3 as Day 4. So I am actually off by one day. On Thursday, we caved in to the demands of our 12 year-old son and got breakfast at Dunkin Donuts at the Prudential Center. He is a doughnut junkie and we saw Dunkin Donuts on literally every corner throughout the trip. His major food groups are bread, chicken strips, cheese, noodles, doughnuts and chocolate. Which if you think about it, isn't really so bad after all. ;) After our carb and coffee fest, we...More

Don't tell your husband but I had to chuckle at his misfortune with the bird. Another interesting report. Thanks for taking the time to share. I never tire of reading other people's trip reports!!! :D
Beach parking options/areas North of Boston (6 Replies)
Have been reading threads on beach areas & see that many of the nice ones (Cranes, Good Harbor,Singing Beach) seem to have very steep parking fees of $20-$25;Are the "official" parking lots generally the only option,or are there alternatives. (I know in Rhode Island,the state beach fees are also steep,but there are private lots basically across the street for less). We Like a beach with some waves & maybe a shower.Don't mind walking a bit. Would be there on a Sunday 8/23,thanks for...More

For outdoors activities, you might like a visit to Ipswich... we have Sea Kayaking off Great Neck or canoing on the Ipswich River. There are also stables where you can go horseback riding. We also have Crane Beach, but give it a couple more weeks before coming for that... the greenheads are in force usually 'til about the 10th-15th. On Sunday mornings (starting at dawn, or even before!), there is a large flea market at Todd Farm, on Rte 1A in Rowley. If antiques interest you, take a trip...More
