Silver Sands State Park just keeps on getting better and better! Beautiful area, lots of walking areas to enjoy the views and the water. Great place for a picnic, watch the tides go in and out, and of course the beautiful sunsets!

I found this while googling for a beach that had free parking. I was looking for a quick getaway day at a beach that wasn't crowded or noisy. Bingo. Lots of space to choose from. Loved the longer walk up the boardwalk to get to...More

This beach has plenty of parking available, nice boardwalk to see the sights, and an island not far offshore that you can explore during low tide. Somewhat a very rocky beach, and was very muddy when we visited, but overall easy to find and lots...More

Clean and nice place to walk. always does my morning jogs/walking in this place. Quiet and clean. You can even walk to Charles Island in a low tide. The only downside, too many shells and sand are not as powder as you’ll expect.

We spent a lovely summer day at this beach. It's a little rocky but with low tide you can walk out to a small island and explore. Our teen boys thought this was pretty cool. There are picnic tables if you want to bring lunch...More

Nice area, free parking, security and beautiful views. Lots of sea creatures during low tide. Bring shoes as the broken shells are sharp.

When I went a few weeks ago they did not have a park entrance fee and we did not have to pay to park! :D It looks like they're doing construction to the parking lot so this may change, but when I went it was free!
