Magnolia Beach (Manchester-By-The-Sea, MA)

Magnolia Beach

Open: everyday, 8 a.m. until sunset

A hidden gem of the Coolidge Reservation, Magnolia Beach is located a short walk from the main entrance (about a half mile walk).  From Coolidge Reservation, just take a left by the bridge off the main trail and you’ll find this sandy paradise.  Or, you can access the beach more directly from a lot at the main entrance in the nearby city of Gloucester.  Magnolia Beach is a fairly small beach so if you do plan on going, I would plan on getting there early as it must get packed during the summer days.


It was the perfect day for a walk along the beach – low tide, 50 degree weather and the waves were swelling.

Magnolia Beach is a perfect for dogs and humans.  Gigi had fun playing catch.


The sea shells on the beach are very unique.


This house on the hill above the beach must have some great views.


One of the beach goers took advantage of the windy conditions to fly his or her kite.


Attached below is a video of the sights and sounds of the beach during my visit.



About New England Nomad

Hi I'm Wayne. Welcome to my blog. I am a true New Englander through and through. I love everything about New England. I especially love discovering new places in New England and sharing my experiences with everyone. I tend to focus on the more unique and lesser known places and things in New England on my blog. Oh yeah, and I love dogs. I always try to include at least one dog in each of my blog posts. I discovered my love of photography a couple of years ago. I know, I got a late start. Now, I photograph anything that seems out of the ordinary, interesting, beautiful and/or unique. And I have noticed how every person, place or thing I photograph has a story behind it or him or her. I don't just photograph things or people or animals. I try to get their background, history or as much information as possible to give the subject more context and meaning. It's interesting how one simple photograph can evoke so much. I am currently using a Nikon D3200 "beginner's camera." Even though there are better cameras on the market, and I will upgrade some time, I love how it functions (usually) and it has served me well. The great thing about my blog is you don't have to be from New England, or even like New England to like my blog (although I've never met anyone who doesn't). All you have to like is to see and read about new or interesting places and things. Hopefully, you'll join me on my many adventures in New England! View all posts by New England Nomad
