Just as its name implies, this soft-sand beach is long, and it's also broad. It draws crowds from the houses that border it, particularly on weekends. Cape Ann Motor Inn is nearby. Amenities: None. Best for: Families. Very limited parking. Don't even think of parking in neighborhood streets if you don't have a town parking sticker—you will be towed.
