Duxbury Bay and Back River

Duxbury Bay and Back River Professional Review and Guide

"Duxbury Bay is an extraordinarily lovely place to paddle. The bay and tidal rivers of the Great Salt Marsh offer exceptional natural beauty and serenity. Duxbury’s seven-mile-long barrier beach is a natural breakwater that protects the bay and marsh and creates a paddling haven for kayakers.

Arrive early in the morning to explore the marshes and islands of the Back River for terrific birding. At midday paddle across the bay to Saquish Beach for a picnic and swim. In any season, Duxbury Bay has a jewel-like quality; its sapphire water and soft sand beaches make one feel gloriously far from home. Attractions: Salt marsh, bird-watching, fishing, island, beautiful barrier beach for picnicking and swimming."
