Bassings Beach In Cohasset Cove

Sun worshippers take note, what I am about to say may change your way of beach lounging forever!

Located just beyond Cohasset Harbor in Cohasset Cove, Bassings Beach is the Town of Cohasset and Scituate’s (technically called Bryant Point) very own island paradise. Part of the beauty of the land is that, with the exception of two small rental cottages, the land is aux natural! The area is protected from further development because of the support of the town and, more specifically, The Cohasset Conservation Trust.  

And, although it is not uncommon to spot local families barbequing and, of course, the 21+ youths enjoying cold summer cocktails, the island and shoreline are almost always left clean by those who visit.

The most popular attraction of Cohasset Cove and Bassings Beach is the sand bar, a gift of the fleeting tides! On any given summer’s day families, friends and liberated youths can be seen kayaking, swimming, sailing and motor boating from all directions to spend some time anchored or beached by the sandbar. With music blasting, water at your feet and portable barbeques sending wafts of chargrilled deliciousness into the air, each visit will feel like a summer dream. There is even room for people to tube or water ski beyond the sand bar when the tide is right.

The one catch to this little piece of summer fun is the “getting there” part. While boaters from Boston to Cape Cod can access Bassings and the sand bar, those without a boating friend will just have to be resourceful.

How do I get there? Good question. In nautical speak, I am told the latitudinal coordinates are 42⁰14”35’ and the longitudinal points are -70⁰47”10’.  There you have it captains, good luck and I’ll save you a cold one! Wherever you are coming from one thing is certain, all are welcome. Just don’t forget to clean up after yourselves and be sure to wear sunscreen, as there is no shelter from the sun on this island.
