Summer 2020 Pricing: Crane Beach Offering Full-Day Vehicle Passes

In recognition of the hotter summer days, Crane Beach has transitioned from half-day and timed slots to full-day vehicle (6 passengers) passes. The new pricing will go into effect for July 3 for the summer through Labor Day.

Trustees Members can purchase full-day vehicle passes for $25 for weekdays and $30 for weekend days, for up to 6 passengers per vehicle. Crane Parking Permit Holders can reserve free passes for up to 6 passengers per vehicle through the online reservation system.

Non-members can purchase Full-day vehicle passes for $45 for weekdays and $50 for weekends, for up to 6 passengers per vehicle.

Additional passengers over the 6 passenger limit can be added for $5 per person. Passengers under the age of 2 are not held against this limit.

This season, Crane Beach has experienced incredible demand and the Beach has been restricted in capacity due to COVID.

“The Trustees wish to thank the public and its members for their patience and understanding as we strive to provide access to our most popular property, at a limited capacity while also following strict federal and state guidelines and restrictions for safety during COVID. We understand that it is has been difficult to get tickets and to visit a place that many have enjoyed for years. We are doing our best during very difficult times to create public access while also keeping everyone safe.”

Tickets are limited due to capacity constraints and the demand is high. Weekday visits will be easier to secure. For the release schedule, and to purchase, please visit the ticketing page here.

Residents of the Town of Ipswich who have a current Ipswich beach sticker on their car are admitted free, year-round, daily.
