Hubby & I spent a beautiful Sunday exploring south east coastal MA. We decided to check out this state beach. We love Horse Neck Beach in Westport so we thought Demarest next town over would be just as nice. Oh boy we're we wrong! First...More

Nice shallow beach with multiple sandbars. Lifeguards during peak summer only. Ample parking and restrooms with outdoor showers. Only the far end of the beach has sand. Great for little kids and older kids for exploring!

A beach with several sand bars at low tide that allow you go our a very far distance from shore. Be careful for the incoming time so you are not stranding in water too deep. Picnic facilities, bathhouse, restrooms and parking are all available.

I went to his beach when I was a child, but now it is nothing but rocks. This beach is solid rock from end to end. The state should fix this and maybe more people would visit this beach again. Sad. Clean modern bathrooms and...More

If you like Sandy beaches, Demarest Lloyd is not the place for you. This state beach is a typical rocky New England beach with a narrow strip of sand before the shore. I love it because it is never crowded. People have to pick spots...More
