Best place on earth!

A hidden gem off of Long Beach. You would never know you were just a 1/2 mile off shore. The sand bar is only accessible during low tide and is a slice of heaven.

Brown's Bank a freak of Nature, a 1 mile square sugar sand and hard packed bottom of the ocean that' miraculously appears as the tide turns in the approach to Plymouth Harbor, for those who have enjoyed it for years locals mostly a hidden Gem, I still think there is a shuttle run in the summer, it's a magical journey...

Simply the best beach in Plymouth when it is there All controlled by the tide Soft sand great people and tons of fun You must have a boat to get there.One downfall is the tide does not always cooperate with your plans for the day

Brown's Bank is a sandbank in Plymouth bay, which appears at low tide. It can only be reached by boat and travel to and fro must be planned according to tide and how much water your boat draws. If you are planning on giving it a try, follow a local, who knows where you can safely travel without getting stuck.... More

A hoot. Simply a low-tide sand bar that you need a boat to visit. Annual 'golf tournament' at the right tide.

We are faithful visitors every other weekend to this boaters paradise. If the tides worked in our favor, believe me it would be every weekend. The sand is sugary soft and the tidal island is huge so privacy is not an issue. The scenery is always awesome with 2 lighthouses in view, great sunsets and lots and lots of bikinis,... More
