Great little beach for kids. Shallow water with minimal waves.

Peggotty Beach is a small sandy cove, especially good for families with young kids. It's not a big teen draw. Life guards are on duty July & August. There is adequate parking for those with a town beach sticker. Non-sticker parking is very limited. The parking lot has 2 portapotties and an open shower. The beach can be seaweedy after... More

If you have a pass and no other place to go this is a nice beach. The facilities have been upgraded (I use the term loosely - means they got a new portapotty). But the view can't be beat. It does get crowded and depending on tides/moons it can be a tough spot to find a good place to spread... More

Peggoty is a small beach that gets very crowded because its close to the harbor. Lots of parking and it now has outdoor showers. Need a Town of Scituate Beach Sticker to park in the lot, no ;arking on the side streets.

Small beach with lots of soft sand, rocks for kids to climb and go crabbing on. No bells and whistles here just a port a potty and an occassional visit from the ice cream truck. You can also rent paddle boards from a small stand in the parking lot. Only a few public parking spots need a beach sticker otherwise.... More

If you are visiting Scituate, you will need to go to the Town hall to obtain a visitor's pass to enjoy any of Scituate's beaches.

Good place for a dip or to watch surfing off point. Parking is limited to locals but if you park downtown you can walk. I'm a local but people who are willing to walk usually are good people.

Thank brian k
