Things to Do
Nahant Beach Reservation Insider Tips
This is a really nice beach. The water is very clean with great, manageable surf, and little to no rocks or seaweed. The entry to the water is flat so it's great for all ages. Parking is just $5, but it tends to fill up quickly, so plan to arrive early on weekends and by 10:30am during the week to ensure you get a spot. The beach is long and somewhat thin at high tide. There are a couple if bathrooms (could be a trek depending where you park); and a very nice Boardwalk. No real concessions here so best to bring lunch and drinks with you. Waves are great for boogie boarding but not fierce like some places. Pleasantly surprised by this beach!
