Plymouth is home to many oceanfront and lakefront beaches. Long Beach is what is commonly referred to as Plymouth Beach. It is a public, lifeguarded, expansive sandy beach that is frequented by sunbathers, families, fishermen, kayakers, and dogs (must be leashed). Great place to watch sunsets. Entrance fee required until 5 p.m. if you don’t have a Town Hall-issued current beach sticker.
Sandy’s seafood restaurant and bar is the cinder-block-with-tented-roof-structure that you see up ahead. The restrooms are adjacent to Sandy’s.
At the end of the parking lot there is a 4-wheel-drive (special permit required) road that you can walk – for miles – to the end of the beach. See the dunes (leave the Piping Plover nesting grounds alone!) and wish you had one of the few homes allowed in this special area.
Parking: yes (permit or entry fee required before 5 p.m.)
Restroom: yes (until about 8:30 p.m.)
