Getting to Horseneck Beach

     At Horseneck Beach we love visitors. It makes our job quite a lot more interesting. There are a great many ways to get to our beach, almost all involving a long ride down Westport's Route 88. Please be aware that Route 88 is routinlely and strictly patroled with Radar by members of the Westport Police Department and the Massachusetts State Police. This road is also an undivided highway in most sections so driving with caution is very much recommended.
