Named for the color of its sands, Manchester-by-the-Sea’s White Beach is a lovely spot located on one side of Crow Island Peninsula. White Beach is usually grouped together with its sister beach, Black Beach, which is located on the opposite side of Crow Island Peninsula. Though Black Beach is the bigger of the two beaches, it doesn’t have any parking spaces, so White Beach is the more popular of the two. With 40 year-round resident parking spaces, White Beach is a popular spot with locals who want to avoid the large crowds at Singing Beach. Dogs are permitted on the beach from October 15th - April 15th.
