  • Take a walk through the park to the lighthouse. Or just enjoy it from a distance. A nice viewing angle is from the Chappy ferry or from Chappaquiddick.  more »
  • Not the best beach to sun bath, but the location is very convenient as it is 10 minutes away from the city downtown.  more »
  • A great photo opportunity from here. Nice beach - short walk from town. Sit and chill for a moment watching the birds.  more »
