Ayer Lane Beach is a small private beach that is restricted to residents of Ayer Land subdivision only. Access to the beach requires walking down stairs and a down short path. The beach area is small and limited especially during high-tide. A small parking area is available with another entrance on Ocean Avenue. The slope to the water is mild with wave size varying from small to mid-sized with warmer water for the New England area. Near the water’s edge thick bands of seaweed and shells leave a reminder of past high-tides. Beach tags are required.
