Living on a barrier island

Salisbury Beach and Seabrook Beach

The most beautiful beach I know, is on the barrier island shared by the towns of Seabrook and Salisbury. It is a barrier Island, as it is surrounded by water, on one side by large salt marshes, on the other by the Atlantic Ocean. The island is also divided by two states, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

During winter , this beachside community, is quiet, nearly dormant as the majority of the houses here are summerhomes. During the summer, however, thousands of people escape the cities, bound for these two towns and numerous others along the easterns seabord.

So being here in March is off-off season. Most restaurants, shops, and bars are closed for the season, but then you can enjoy the beach and the sea, without too much interruptions.
