Lynn/Nahant Beach Reservation

Stroll along this two mile stretch of promenade that offers uninterrupted views of Lynn Harbor and Nahant Bay. Four beaches extend along this ocean side avenue, Kinds Beach, Lynn Beach, Nahant Beach, and Long Beach. Year round activities such as walking, jogging, and bicycling are available to the public along the promenade. Vast areas of hard-packed sand are exposed at low tide which can be accessed at Kings Beach and Long beach on Nahant Bay as well as near the boat launching area on Lynn Harbor. The area also features a mile-long system of fragile sand dunes parallel to Long Beach.
