Crane Beach


PHOTOGRAPH by Sarah Jordan McCaffery


Crane Beach, long regarded as the best beach in the region, just keeps getting better. It not only boasts miles of soft sand beach, protected dunes, and nature trails, but its facilities are incredibly welcoming and are continually being upgraded. The beach is handicap accessible, and this year its bathhouses got a $1.7 million eco-friendly renovation. Other new amenities include a retail shop filled with beach must-haves and the addition of Appleton Farms grass-fed hamburgers on the Snack Shack menu.
