This is an excellent place to view Marblehead, Marblehead Harbor, and the Atlantic Ocean. There are park benches and one area that has covered seating. Spectacular seaside setting is not to be missed when visiting Marblehead. Also a stop for Poke-mon collectors!

Wow, wow, wow. You have to see it yourself. Easy to walk around, plenty if benches to sit, read, relax and just enjoy this amazing view. Drive around the island to see some amazing homes.

Away from it all, for a stroll or to sit and relax by the ocean waves, this place is perfect to go with children, you loved ones or by yourself.

We had a few hours to kill before heading back to Boston and flying out. We decided to stop here and were really glad we did. My only regret is that we didn't bring a picnic. The view of the boats in the harbor is...More

Lovely public place with views along the coast and of the bay and the lighthouse. Good place to walk and sit and take in the day - would recommend those visiting North Shore to visit Marblehead and take in this glorious view.
