To help the public get to and enjoy the coast, the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) makes online maps and descriptions of public access sites along the Commonwealth’s coast available to the public through:

  • Coast Guide Online - Developed by CZM for use on mobile phones and tablets, as well as desktop computers, this interactive mapping tool includes more than 1,800 sites along the Massachusetts coast that are owned by government agencies and nonprofits and open to the public—from long, sandy beaches and rocky shores to small rights-of-way and public landings.
  • Massachusetts Coast Guide to Boston Harbor and the North Shore - This 2004 publication includes 22 maps and nearly 400 public access sites from Salisbury to Hull, ranging from expansive parks with concession stands to small public landings and out-of-the-way spots.
