Germantown Firestation Beach is a small beach located off Doane Street in Quincy Massachusetts. On the beach, dune grass grows at the edge of the water with large amounts of crushed shells mixed with the mildly rocky areas, and traditional sand. The water is calm, and during high tide there is plenty of beach space for relaxing or fishing, particularly to the southern end. This is a popular fishing site; a permit is required.
