7 New England Beaches I Love ...


New England Beach spots are some of the best spots out there.

As ya'll know, I live in New England and I have to say, there are truly some incredible New England beach spots that most people would just overlook.

I was born and raised in Michigan and all we had were lake spots, so to be in a place that has real ocean beaches, it truly is incredible and below, I am going to detail out the top 7 New England beach spots that I absolutely love!

1. Nahant Beach

Nahant Beach

Nahant is a great little town in Massachusetts and by far, it has the best beach out there.

This is honestly one of the ones that I go to (and not because it is just 20 minutes from my house either), it is clean, it is easy to get to and the parking is awesome.

There are tons of things that I look for in a beach and the parking is one of them.

This beach is $3.00 per car to park – beat that parking charge!

Also, the parking lot is long because the beach is long – so no matter where you park, you'll be able to easily get on the beach without having to trudge through the sand dunes!

2. Rye Beach

Rye Beach

Rye beach is actually in New Hampshire and it is actually a great place for anyone that is looking for sandy white beaches with a long stretch of ocean.

It is only about 3 miles form Portsmouth and there are tons of different lodging areas right on the beach.

This is one of my favorite New England beach spots because it is more of a day trip for me.

It has incredible restaurants all around it and everything is easily accessible!

3. Hermit Island (Head Beach)

Hermit Island (Head Beach)

This past week I actually went to Maine and while the vacation house that I rented was a disaster, I did realize that the New England beach spots in Maine was absolutely incredible.

Hermit Island (to the locals) and Head Beach to the rest of us is actually a great spot if you are looking for clean and clear water with a bunch of waves.

The parking is just $7.00 and it is tucked way back on an old country road.

Just watch out for the hermit crabs … because seriously guys, there are thousands of them!
