Howland Beach Properties and Club


After the complete destruction of all of the buildings along the waterfront by the 1938 hurricane (they didn’t have names then), Steve Howland built the original bathhouses and the two cottages which comprise Howland Beach today. The wide expanse of beach, with outstanding rock formations that appear at low tide, is shown above.


Located in the village of Acoaxet, part of the town of Westport, Massachusetts, the site is less than 30 minutes from Fall River or New Bedford. Sunning, swimming, body surfing, and kayaking are a few of the activities available. Excellent surf casting for striped bass and other local fish is also popular.

Howland Beach is a family-oriented, members-only club providing individual private changing rooms/storage lockers. Operation is seasonal, from Memorial Day weekend to Columbus Day weekend. Members receive keys to their individual changing room/storage room which, while providing a private, personal place to change clothes, also gives members a place to securely store their personal beach items such as umbrellas, chairs, barbecues, etc.

In addition to the private bathhouses, toilet and shower facilities are also provided. Members receive parking passes, which allow cars to enter the secured, guarded facility on all days that the club is open. Access to the south-facing beach on the Atlantic is only a few yards away.
