We went here by accident and loved the accident. This beach is very beautifully laid and there was a good crowd too since it was a gorgeous sunny day. The parking is like pulling your own teeth unless you get early and/or lucky to get...More

This is probably the worst beach I've been to within day trip distance from Boston. $20 to park which seems standard around MA but this was a dirt lot. The beach sits close to the road and no surrounding scenery besides the ocean. It's very...More

I lived here for 10 years, and I cannot understand why this town can't thrive. The sheer number of empty storefronts is amazing to me. It's sad. The town has some great people, but it needs someone with vision to bring it into the 21st...More

We had high expectations for this resort but sadly they were not met. Why because it looked as though it needed a big clean up and local traders were not in our opinion very friendly. Even given the fact that it is a resort closed...More

Spent a pleasant afternoon here with family. Walked up and down the beach and had a nice lunch..although many storefronts are closed, which was somewhat disappointing. Still a nice way to spend the afternoon.

It’s an ok beach soft rolling waves with gin clear water there’s a long shoal of rocks right at the break line that makes it treacherous getting in the water but once your past it it’s fine. The beach itself is a bit narrow and...More

This can be a decent beach to dive in, except the parking is a pain. Parking here can get expensive. I like to arrive here to dive only when it is not crowded and only after checking the tide table. Plenty of crustaceans and fish...More

Stayed at Hull for 4 nights with the family at a Hotel overlooking the beach. A wonderful beach for an evening stroll with the kids. Collect shells and watch the sun set! Great beach during the day for bathing. Safe and clean (and very popular!).

It depends upon the place. Most check ins are at 3PM and checkouts are usually at 11AM with late checkouts at 12noon. The 3-4 hours allows for the hotel staff to clean the rooms between guests. If you arrive early... More
