The best beaches in New England
FOR BEACH VOLLEYBALL - Even if you dont want to commit to an organized beach volleyball league, there are good options for pickup matches, which are more in the anarchic spirit of the game, anyway. On weekends, try Dead Horse Beach at Salem Willows in Salem, which also boasts the E.W. Hobbs popcorn and ice cream stand. Out on Marthas Vineyard, ad hoc volleyball vies for beach terrain with surfers, body boarders, and picnicking families at South Beach in Edgartown. Park along the road or pedal out on the bike path from town.
