The Massachusetts Forests and Parks system offers several ocean beaches that span the Atlantic coastline, including Salisbury Beach, Dorchester Shores, Nantasket Beach, Hull, Horseneck Beach, Westport and more. Other water-based retreats include fresh water swimming areas and swimming pools. If getting wet isn’t appealing, there are dozens of additional coastline properties to explore and feel the cooling Atlantic Ocean breezes as well as many magnificent inland lakes, ponds, rivers and streams.
