About Cape Ann

Probably the most powerful beachbreak in northern Massachusetts, Long Beach consistently attracts the maximum available swell and magnifies it onto the low tide sandbanks. The southern corner has a hollow left breaking into the rocks, which is less likely to close-out than the rest of the beach.

The most crowded spot in the Cape Anne area, which isn’t saying much. Parking is sketchy.
