Duxbury Beach Park
Other Ideas: The Charles River Esplanade; Breakheart Reservation; Maudslay State Park; Arnold Arboretum; Massachusetts DCR State Parks
Two beaches in one as the beach is sort of a thin pennisula with a parking lot in the middle: Outer Beach offers a great spot for sun-bathing, walking and swimming. At Inner Beach you'll discover protected clam beds, kayaking, & a boat launch and some ideal bird-watching opportunities.
Overall, the beach is a long thin stretch that is somewhat 'stoney' along the shore. Fun for collecting in buckets as you walk along. There are waves for boogie boarding in the beautiful clear green surf.
No Dogs, Glass, Fires, Or Alcohol!!!
Lifeguard on Duty
The concession stand inside the Bathhouse is a favorite daytime spot for ice cream, hot fogs, burgers and more.
The Duxbury Beach Park Pavillion offers restrooms and showers. Facilities are open from 9:00am to 8:00pm and are located on the side of the building nearest the parking lot.

Blakemans At Duxburyvery disappointed claimed to be all fresh, but didnt taste that way. clamstrip plate $15.95....clams were tiny, battered with this tiny strip inside and the portion of clams was ridiculous small for the money. i swear they were frozen..... fishermans platter $23.00.... tiny piece of fish,scallops were not good, shrimp were the tiny ones ( the size of your pinky nail) clams were terrible dwarfed by a lot of french fries and a few onion rings. fish sandwich was the biggest joke of all. tiny piece of fish not even the size of my palm served on what tasted like a no name tiny hamburger bun, that was hard on the edges a stipe og romaine lettuce and iit diddnt even come with fries ( not that they were good anyway) but, get this the charged $12.95...... what a joke, actually its a disgrace.... we also had chowder , that was pretty good and 3 soft drinks. my bill was $67.00.... I feel totally taken, for what I consider the worst fried food I ever eaten. to bad the atmosphere and the setting is really nice, what a waste of space............
The Blackcrabgrab those last days of summer at Duxbury beach and don't worry about packing a picnic - The Black Crab has is all! We just discovered it was open for dinner and have had been back often(for lunch,too). Lobster dinners have yummy big lobsters (they look like 11/2lb to me.).They don't skimp on the lemon wedges & butter. A 3oz ladel full in a big cup gives you room for dipping) and the sweet local corn, chips and cole slaw made this a big memorable meal.. We also love the toasted butter ro;; filled with fried clams. They do it just right. The chowder or lobster bisque with a salad (I pick lobster again) is a great meal,too. The kids can always find plenty to choose from and the staff is friendly and helpful. I like that they ask if you're familiar with The Black Crab. Sunsets are amazing! The casual feel and warm welcome will bring us back again and again. I know The Black Crab will become a summer tradition for our family.
