Nestled in historic Onset Village, North Water Street Beach is a wonderful destination to walk to when visiting town. This is a small beach, and most of the sand vanishes at high tide, but it’s still enjoyable for a picnic and some fresh air. We recommend visiting at the end of the day to catch a gorgeous sunset over Broad Cove and the East River.
Paddlers can launch a kayak or paddleboard from the North Water Street Beach, too – it’s just a short carry from the street to the shore.
Habitats & Wildlife
The sheltered waters of Broad Cove and Onset Bay play host to a variety of waterbirds throughout the year. Come here with binoculars or a camera and look for different species of ducks, geese, and wading birds out on the water.
