And that’s about it. Come at high tide or the raft will be beached. Small but they don keep clean and have lifeguard for the little ones, Nantasket is a much better bigger beach at 10 min away but this one is so convenient

Fake beach sand, and muddy water. If you do visit, make sure it's at high tide. There was also lots of sea grass floating around, and sticking to my body.

If you are in Hingham and short on time, hit the bathing beach at high tide. There is a lot going on. There is a raft to swim out to, free parking and access to paddle board and kayak rentals.

a bit of a hidden gem in that it is right off 3A but most folks likely drive right past it. Very quiet water and quite muddy at low tide, Otherwise, it is a great location with not much boat traffic, especially for flat water...More
