Nantasket Beach

Nantasket Beach Review

A 45-minute drive from downtown Boston, Nantasket Beach has cleaner sand and warmer water than most local beaches. Kids love the tidal pools that form at low tide. A 1½-mile promenade makes for great people-watching. Take Route 3A South to Washington Boulevard, Hingham, and follow signs to Nantasket Avenue. Amenities: lifeguards; toilets. Best for: swimming; walking.
