It is one of the only beaches in Scituate that you can go to at high tide or low tide. It is close to Scituate harbor that you could walk it if you wanted to.

You need a parking pass to park at the beach. Check with your hotel. Nice beach for families with children.

Nice sandy beach with very attentive lifeguards. I wish the port-o-potties were serviced a little more often though.

Peggotty Beach is a small sandy cove, especially good for families with young kids. It's not a big teen draw. Life guards are on duty July & August. There is adequate parking for those with a town beach sticker. Non-sticker parking is very limited. The...More
