Nice sandy beach with very attentive lifeguards. I wish the port-o-potties were serviced a little more often though.

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...More
