Located at the foot of Seaview and Ocean avenues off Sconticut Neck Road in Fairhaven, this public beach and boat ramp sits on the shores of Little Bay and Nasketucket Bay. Visitors can gaze straight across the water to Nasketucket Bay State Reservation, whose protected woods and beach provide a beautiful natural backdrop.
From beginner kayakers to expert sailors, boaters of all levels can use the boat ramp at Seaview Avenue to access Buzzards Bay. Paddle north along the calm, marshy shoreline of Little Bay, or cruise south toward West Island and the Bay’s open waters. Boats up to 50 feet can launch from here, and small boat owners can keep their vessels at the dinghy storage area for a small annual fee.
Habitats & Wildlife
The mixed sandy, rocky, and marshy shoreline at Seaview Avenue is a great place for outdoor enthusiasts to look for many different kinds of wildlife. Birds such as herons and egrets hunt in the shallow salt marshes. Overhead, gulls and ospreys fly in search of their next meal.
The beach at Seaview Avenue is an exciting place for kids to explore the shoreline. Look for fiddler crabs and hermit crabs crawling along the rocks and marsh grasses. Turn over a few stones, and you might find some more interesting critters that dwell in these hidden spots! We recommend bringing along a seashore field guide to help identify everything you find.
