Surfside Beaches (Western Ave, Stones and Footsteps)

The Land Bank maintains three beaches along the south shore near Surfside Beach. The first is opposite the youth hostel on Western Avenue. The other two are accessed by Nonantum Avenue and are known as Stones and Footsteps. All three have dirt parking areas and paths/stairs for beach access. The waves and current along the south shore make these beaches are ideal for strong swimmers and surfers.
