Yirrell Beach

Suffolk County

Yirrell Beach is located on Shirley Street in Winthrop, Massachusetts. This mid-size beach is seldom crowded and generally filled with locals (similar to neighboring Winthrop Beach) rather than visitors from other areas of the state. The beach sand is extremely rocky amid broken shells and scattered dune grass; the northern portion of the beach has fewer rocks and has more real estate for spreading out. Additionally, at the northern part of the beach, a tidal-pool forms during low-tide creating a great area for exploration. The waves are on the smaller side, with a gradual entry into the water, great for children or people who want to just dip their feet in the water. Accompanying the sound of the waves, airplanes soar overhead as they prepare to land at Logan Airport.
