Edgewater Beach is a small beach located off Edgewater Drive in Quincy, Massachusetts. Rocky and muddy, not ideal for sunbathers or people looking go swim but a great location to catch the smell of the salty air by relaxing in one of the many benches that overlook the Weymouth Fore River and Raccoon Island. Edgewater Beach is a popular area for fishing and walking.
