Take a stroll along this beautiful beach and then out to an island via a land bridge at low tide. This is one of those cool beaches in New England that opens up a land bridge to an island you can walk out to. The other one I've seen like this is Popham Beach in Maine. This water will be warmer than there! Parking is expensive so I suggest parking somewhere in town on 127 and walking with a backpack to the beach to save the $25 daily fee on busy summer weekends. May sure you figure out what time of day low tide is before you go!

To get to Milk island wait until the tide is out, you can walk the land bridge and see Gloucester from the ocean without having to take a boat
