Easton's Beach is a pleasant and convenient beach. Plentiful parking right up to the beach. Not exceptionally beautiful, but adequate and convenient.

Not sure what it is like during summer, but seemed pretty underwhelming to me in early October. Used the free parking to get to the Cliffwalk. Nice view of the cliffs and homes from here.

We parked at Easton's Beach to begin our hike on the Cliff Walk. The beach has lots of seashells, which I enjoy as I collect them. The sand is gray, more like dirt. We are from Californie, so much different than what we are used...More

Stay for the beach and exhibits. Free parking. Fast service. Great price for lobster. We went weekly and were never disappointed. If you do not like mayo they serve lobster with butter too.

What a great beach. The waves were so beautiful the day we were here! It is within walking distance of the cliff walk and plenty of restaurants. There is also a snack bar with good lobster rolls.

A relaxing and fairly empty beach. I'm sure in the summer it gets busier. Park at the 2nd lot instead of the first (it's basically empty). Dogs aren't allowed Memorial Day through September 30th, which I don't think it great.

First of all parking was $20... so tried to park on the side to no avail. Not only that, but the beach looked horrible, I would not waste my time going there.

I don't know if it is raked or not. I have been twice in the winter/spring. One time the beach was pristine. The second was a day after a blizzard hit New England. Part of the beach was covered with large clams but the... More
