Avalon Beach is a small sandy beach located on Avalon Avenue in Quincy, Massachusetts. The calm water and tree coverage during the summer make Avalon Beach a great vantage point to relax and enjoy the boats coming and going from Bay Pointe Marina or crossing Shipyard Point. Space on the beach is limited during high-tide although, shaded grass only steps away. The water is calm, the grade to the beach is gradual, and the sand becomes dense with pebbles as you near the water.
