This place does require a permit to park (from the Park Service). However, it does offer expansive beaches with very few people on them. We always enjoy spending an afternoon walking down this lovely part of Massachusetts.

If you go in summer, as the hundreds of parking places attest to, the place is undoubtedly filled to the gills with beach goers. However, off-season, you practically have the entire beach front to yourselves. Walk down from the visitor's center along the bike path,...More
