Nelson Beach is north of Plymouth downtown, and Plymouth Rock.
It is a much cozier beach than Plymouth Long Beach.
Nelson Beach is in a small park with a playground, a snack bar and several picnic tables.
They close at 9pm, there doesn't appear to be a fee to get in.
The beach is not large but it is more sandy than Plymouth Long Beach and you can see a lighthouse from here.
Since it is low tide now, most of this beach may be covered with water at high tide.
The water here is calm, no lifeguard stands. I also see people with dogs, taking them for a walk.
This also may be the popular spot for drinking your morning coffee and reading the newspaper, or watch the sunrise.
