Whale’s Beach is located on Puritan Road in Swampscott, Massachusetts. This small beach has hard packed sand with scattered seaweed, a gradual slope into the water, and moderate waves. During high-tide the beach essentially disappears although there is a small grassy area to relax near the entrance. Whale’s Beach is a escape for those looking for a quiet escape from the crowded public in the area.
