I was surprised to see how clean the beach looked and how empty. The people there mid day, mid week, seemed to be locals and people on lunch break (lots of orange construction shirts). The smell wasn't overpowering - but it was there - sulfer-y. The gulls didn't annoy. Pretty views - nice place to take a little break.

Love that you can hop on the T to go to the beach. This beach is part of the Boston harbor, the beach is flat, no dunes, and the sand is not very clean, though there are tons of large clam shells, mussels, skate egg cases, seaweeds so it's good for beachcombers but you need to watch where you step....

My wife and I walk this beautiful, three-mile long beach almost daily. Easy to get to by metro or by car, 4-hour free parking along the beach, numerous restaurants, bathhouses, showers, and water fountains, make walking along this uncrowded, clean and nicely sanded beach, a joy. Weekends you might find music at its bandstand, excellent food stalls, and once every... More

Beautiful and relatively quiet beach (at least during the week). Not a great spot for surfing, but some good shell collecting opportunities. Plenty of restaurants nearby, too.

We really enjoyed a stroll along Revere beach. It's a relatively quiet beach, without a lot of "kitch". We hopped off the subway at Revere and walked two blocks to the beach. Two change houses housed washrooms and outdoor showers and there were shaded pavilions with benches for those who wanted to get out of the sun. (On the walkway).... More

It's a beach but nothing great or worth going out of your way to see. If you're in the area and want to take a walk on the beach it will do fine.

Nice and calm place for a weekend hangout. Not much crowded. Parking is free. My daughter enjoyed a lot at this beach. Would definitely recommend this to everyone.

We had a day to spare on our 4 day Boston trip and took the train to Revere beach. Charmless architecture and no-where pleasant to eat...Everywhere was either closed or looked totally old and wash out with unappetizing calorie fuelled offerings. In the end, after wandering up and down, we got the train back and ate in a food hall.... More

We took a ride down to Revere Beach to see the Sand Sculptures last Sunday 7/24. The place was packed, parking was an issue along Ocean Ave and the Blvd., the parking lots were full and charging $20 to park. The MBTA has a large parking lot at the Wonderland (T) stop 1800 spaces, and it's only a short walk... More
