King’s Beach is located on Lynn Shore Drive in Lynn, Massachusetts and extends into Swampscott Massachusetts. Part of the Lynn Shore and Nahant Beach Reservations, King’s Beach is part of a busy trail system that has four miles of ocean view. In addition to the ocean view, the beach is connected to Red Rock Park, another area to relax and take in the ocean views. The beach itself is hard packed sand with a gradual drop-off to the water. More of an overflow beach, King’s Beach often receives beach goers who had difficulty finding parking at Nahant Beach and Lynn Beach. More often than not parking is available and a great time can be had at the beach, as long as it’s low-tide. At high-tide the beach is non-existent and the water is up to the seawall. Low-tide offers shell exploration and open space to run or play beach games.
