Wingaersheek BeachAtlantic Street, Gloucester, MA
Situated in the western part of Gloucester on Atlantic Street off Rte. 133 and Concord Street, this beautiful beach is along the Annisquam River and Ipswich Bay.
Wingaersheek Beach has white sands, crystal clear waters, and huge rocks in the water that you can climb around at low tide.
The beach goes on forever at low tide and the water stays shallow for a long time. The tide pool formations are perfect places for kids to get up-close-and-personal with snails, tiny fish & shrimp, hermit crabs, and other creatures.
There are no real waves to speak of, so it’s great for little kids. No boogie boards are allowed.
With tide pools to explore and lots of rock formations for climbing, Wingaersheek is a favorite for families with children. Low tide is actually a great time to visit Wingaersheek Beach. Check the tide charts here to see when low tide will be when you visit.
There is a concession stand, rest rooms and showers. Packing a cooler with snacks, drinks, and lunch is a good idea. Sometimes, you can find a vendor on the beach selling italian ice from a cart.
This is a carry-in/carry out beach. You must take your trash with you. ‘Nothing should be left behind but your footprints’.
Dogs are not allowed on the beach from Memorial Day to the 15th of September.
