Salisbury Beach is a beautiful natural resource in Massachusetts. Long and beautifully sandy...soft sand. Easy access...Lots of parking. Several spots up off the beach to get refreshments, lunch, or dinner. Really an untapped special beach...can get crowded, but not like Hampton. Salisbury is as large, but more free and quiet. Lots of beachcombers and beach goers...a very happy place to... More

The beach is not well maintained and could use a good grading to pick up the trash. I have a pet peeve and it is cigarette butts lying all over. NASTY! Please grade your beach and it would be soooo much cleaner.

No skim boarding, it's a beach and that is one of the main reason to be there. Needs a good cleaning especially by the lifeguard stands.

No lifeguards or charge for parking before 9am - we made it a regular weekend trek, get in before 8am and out by 9am - no traffic, no crowd, just a relaxing time sitting on the beach and watching the waves.

There is something for everyone and you can come almost any time of year, enjoy games and food. The boardwalk beach can be a bit crowded and not the neatest - people really need to stop being so inconsiderate by leaving trash on the beach - but we always enjoy it. The reservation is also a great beach if you... More

A great way to spend the day on a nice sandy beach. The sun was nice and the views along the river were great. There is a campground there too, but it does not offer much shade. My favorite part was sitting along the Merrimack River. It did not look that wide but there were some pretty good sized ships... More

Salisbury is a great little beach town to visit. The center beach area is being rebuilt after a storm this winter caused damage but a new boardwalk is being built. The reservation is awesome and if you like to camp this is a great place right on the ocean.

Our sister-in-law was born here and she insisted that we experience her childhood. You can still feel it... a nice white beach, the arcade, the ice cream shops, music by the water, fun restaurants. We loved it!
