Features

beachway to Squeteague Harbor Beach in Cataumet

Squeteague Harbor Beach is tucked away from the crowds, which makes it a quiet spot to enjoy a day by the water.

What Squeteague Harbor Beach lacks in size, it makes up for in scenic beauty. The bottom is soft and the water is shallow and calm, which makes it a nice place for young children. Or come here on your own with a blanket and a good book to relax and enjoy a quiet morning by the water.

Squeteague Harbor Beach is also a great launching spot for rowboats, kayaks, and paddleboards. Practice your paddling on placid Squeteague Harbor, which is just the right size for explorers of all levels to enjoy. We recommend journeying across the harbor to Lawrence Island, where you can stop, picnic, and take a walk by the water.

Habitats & Wildlife

The shoreline at Squeteague Harbor Beach transitions from salt marsh to sand. Search the harbor’s shores for crabs and minnows darting along the edge of the water. Kids can bring a fishing pole and try their hand at casting for small fish from the shore or a boat.
