Phillip’s Beach is located at the end of Ocean Avenue in Swampscott, Massachusetts. The beach view is hidden by marshland and is quite different from the other beaches in Swampscott. Phillip’s Beach has a gradual slope to the water, the waves are moderate-sized, and the beach is relatively small as are the other beaches in Swampscott. The major differences are the rocks near the water and the large amount of soft sand on the beach. During high-tide beaches in the area lose beach space whereas Phillip’s Beach has ample space. If a resident or renting in Swampscott, Phillip's Beach is perfect for a quick get-away.
