Peggotty Beach is a small sandy cove, especially good for families with young kids. It's not a big teen draw. Life guards are on duty July & August. There is adequate parking for those with a town beach sticker. Non-sticker parking is very limited. The...More

If you have a pass and no other place to go this is a nice beach. The facilities have been upgraded (I use the term loosely - means they got a new portapotty). But the view can't be beat. It does get crowded and depending...More
