I went to this beach in the fall, and it is absolutely breathtaking. I don't know if it is open to the public in the summer months, but it is fantastic to walk on nonetheless.

Spent our 30th Anniversary on this beach during a warm spell in October. What a treat! Got some sea shells. Very relaxing, watched the ships going to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.

We enjoyed a beautiful October morning walking on the beach. The shells were plentiful and the beach was not crowded.

Excellent beach for swimming and wind surfing on one side and a calm children's beach on the other harbor side. Excellent seafood at the snack bar done by a local restaurant.
