Smuggler’s Beach: Relax and Play

The only thing folks smuggle here today is fun! Smuggler’s Beach, named for its rum-smuggling past, is a family-friendly beach for all to enjoy, featuring an accessible recreational fishing pier and boat launch for easy access to Bass River and Nantucket Sound. Did you know the fishing is great on the 127-acre Yarmouth Artificial Reef, made of recycled tires?
