West Manchester Beach is located on Harbor Street in Manchester, Massachusetts. West Manchester Beach is not a true “beach” destination. With only two parking spaces for residents from May 1st through October 1st the beach really does not offer much. The beach is filled with fresh and aged seaweed, rocks, and mud. Often at high-tide the beach is non-existent, other than the piles of seaweed. The real appeal of this beach is the view which includes boat traffic from the Manchester Channel, Halftide Rocks, and Ram Island. West Manchester Beach is worth a quick stop for a scenic view or photo op if in the Manchester, Massachusetts area.
