  • The waves were HUGE, The biggest I've ever seen in any beach in all of New England. But a very clean beach, nice sand to walk on and didn't hurt your feet at all.
  • This a beautiful place for beach and fishing! The beach is clean and good for bass fishing! It has plenty of parking space. The parking fee is 5$ only! I will visit the places more often!
  • This is a beautiful refuge! Lots to explore. $5 entry fee is charged but I paid $20 and now have a pass for 1 year, I will definitely go back.
  • The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful! The trails are well maintained and it feels like a great adventure. There are many species of birds. I would suggest a good pair of binoculars to get a closer view. It's a photographer's paradise.
  • Love this out door activity. 🏖️ Beach is my go to places to relax enjoy the beautiful ladies and surf fishing 🎣. And Plum Island has all that.
