The Duxbury Beach Reservation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) charitable corporation, owns approximately 4 miles of Duxbury Beach, a 7.5-mile long barrier beach that extends from Marshfield in the north to Gurnet Point and Saquish in the south. The Reservation’s mission is to protect the beach structure, preserve its ecological resources and maintain recreational access. Part of this responsibility is to maintain a Coastal Ecology Program on Duxbury Beach. The Reservation leases a portion of the beach to the Town of Duxbury which sells beach stickers to access parking lots and the oversand driving area on the front beach. The Duxbury Police Department manages the people and vehicles on the beach. The Reservation also allows recreational access for the general public through daily parking passes to Duxbury Beach Park which is managed by a third party.
