Short Beach

 Winthrop Parkway
Revere, MA 02151
Suffolk County

Short Beach is located on Winthrop Parkway in Revere, Massachusetts. Situated on Revere’s border to Winthrop, the beach is “short”. Facing the ocean the right side of the beach is extremely rocky, and the left side of the beach is primarily hard packed sand. The waves are on the small side and entry into the water is gradual. During high-tide the beach disappears, plan on checking the tide schedule. Not crowded like Revere Beach, Short Beach provides a less crowded alternative.
