Calm pristine beach for children and residents. Off street parking and great family picnic area. No fee and carry in and carry out what you bring.

Having lived in Lanesville just above Plum Cove Beach, we found this to be the perfect beach spot for families with small children. Adults and children will love swimming, exploring, and catching hermit crabs, and parents will love the enclosed sides and peace of mind...More

No parking for guests. Spoke to police about this and they confirmed it's a resident only beach. It looks like a great beach, but since the town isn't friendly towards guests, then I guess we'll never know.

Someone else here said the sunsets were "amazing". I agree! Not a bad way to cap off a tour of beautiful Cape Ann!

We stumbled upon this while out exploring with no particular place to go. This is definitely a local's area. There is a slight smell to the water here, but we had fun hanging out for a little while.

Hidden gem next to sleepy little neighborhood containing a coffee shop, crepe maker, liquor store and friendly folk. Tide was out, will come back again when it's in. Beautiful drive from Beverly.
