The past few days of heat have tortured us at Cambridge Realty; we longed for the sweet serenity of the beach instead of blankets of humidity. Check out these day-trip spots not too far from the city!
This 2-mile stretch of sand is one of the most popular spots for Boston beach-lovers, sporting a annual New England sand-sculpture festival and tons of beach activities. It’s family-friendly with public facilities, and close-to-home at the end of the MBTA Blue line, the Wonderland T stop. Also, it’s the oldest public beach in the US!

Boston’s Harbor Islands is easily accessible on quick ferry ride, where there’s pebbles to skip, sand to tan on, and restrooms and concessions. The boat ride can be accessed once you get off at the Aquarium T stop.

This South Boston beach is another easily-accessable beach a short walk from the JFK/UMASS T stop on the red line. Though amenities are not as readily available, the view is worth it.

This beach is a local favorite, right between Logan Airport and the Blue line. You may find that it’s small, but with a playground and many other courts and amenities this small beach is upgraded. Get off at the Orient Heights T stop and take a short jaunt to this adorable beach!
