Sawyers Beach, a small beach owned by the town of Rye, is located along Route 1A in Rye, New Hampshire between Sea Road and Jenness State Beach. The beach is separated from the road by a large rocky barrier. The barrier can be difficult to walk up; wood planks are put out during the warmer months making entry over the rocky barrier easier. In addition to the planks, there is an entry at the end of South Road and next to the Beach Club, a private oceanfront club. Sawyers Beach has a mixture of sand, pebbles, and seaweed that has been washed ashore. It's a gradual walk out into the water and the waves are adequate for surfing. With moderate parking and no facilities, the beach seldom gets filled, making Sawyers Beach a popular choice with locals and those looking to escape the more crowded beaches in the area.
