Parking Options & Hours

Parking map for Nantasket Beach

Parking rates vary depending on the type of parking lot. There are two types of parking at Nantasket Beach: those managed by the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and by the Town of Hull. Refer to this map for the location of all Nantasket Beach parking lots.

Below are the DCR-managed lots:

  • Main DCR Beach Lot
  • George Washington Blvd DCR Beach Parking Lot
  • Seawall Parking Lot
  • MJM Bathhouse Parking Lot
  • Additional DCR Beach Parking Lot

From May 29 to Labor Day, visitors will be charged the following fees when parking in these DCR lots.

Visitor Price
MA residents $15
Non-MA residents  $40

Payments are collected from 8 AM to 4 PM every day. If you arrive earlier than 8 AM, you must wait for the parking attendants to arrive to pay or you risk incurring a parking ticket. On weekends, we recommend early arrival since lots fill quickly.

If you plan to visit the beach frequently, purchase an annual parking pass for $60 or a lifetime senior pass for $10 from the YODEL web page.

Free 2-hour parking is offered at two lots: 

  • The surface lot adjacent to The Parrot at 1 Hull Shore Drive
  • Seawall Street Parking along Hull Shore Drive

Alternatively, park in the Town of Hull’s surface lots below. The price is $20 per day, but rates may vary depending on the weather. Hull residents with a town parking sticker enjoy free parking.

Take Public Transit to Avoid Parking

The MBTA bus line 714 drops by Nantasket Avenue from Bay Street to Wash Boulevard bus station. It’s a five-minute walk from the beach, and the one-way fare is $1.70.
