Crane Beach is one of the most spectacular beach and outdoor recreation destinations on the East Coast. With its clean, inviting water, miles of shoreline, and mesmerizing views, Crane Beach has been a favorite with the ocean-loving public for generations. Four miles of pristine white-sand beaches flank the coastline and more than five miles of trails wind through coastal dunes and maritime forests. Whether you intend to take a refreshing plunge, play in the sand, or stroll the trails, this unparalleled seaside experience is sure to provide lots of fun – and great memories, too. Crane Beach is one of 111 properties in the Commonwealth – including working farms, historic homesteads and gardens, community parks, barrier beaches and mountain vistas – owned and managed by the non-profit organization The Trustees of Reservations.
