Essex County

Pavilion Beach is located on Little Neck Road in Ipswich, Massachusetts. This mid-sized beach sees activity as soon as the weather warms up. Whether people are digging for clams or taking a stroll on the beach it’s a popular location for residents of Ipswich. The beach approach has a moderate slope, but water shoes are necessary for water entry as there are dense groupings of small rocks. The beach has a fair amount of soft sand for relaxing; seaweed in bunches reminds beach goers where the high-tide ends. Only steps away from parking, Pavilion Beach is a convenient location to stop, relax, and enjoy the ocean view.
