Nahant Beach Reservation is a protected coastal reservation in the town of Nahant, Massachusetts. It includes 66.5 acres (26.9 ha) of beaches and recreational areas.[3] Nahant Road, called Nahant Beach Boulevard when it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003, offers access to 7,000-foot (2,100 m) Long Beach on the Atlantic Ocean side to the east. The reservation includes a boat ramp with access to Lynn Harbor and shares athletic fields with Lynn Shore Reservation in the area around Nahant Rotary, a traffic circle at the reservation's northern end.[4][5]

The reservation is part of the Metropolitan Park System of Greater Boston.
