Clark Beach is located off Clark Road in Ipswich, Massachusetts and is a private beach for residents of Great Neck. At the beach’s entrance seaweed has accumulated over time, creating varying bands and clumps from the tides across the beach. In addition to the seaweed, there are pebbles scattered throughout with more rocks at the water’s entrance. This may not be the best swimming beach, but the calm water does provide a perfect area for kayaking or paddle boarding. The space on the beach is limited to a narrow band, but with limited occupants there’s ample space for relaxation.
