Small municipal lot, with a daily fee in season ($25). 4WD access on the beach for those with permits.
Parking lot at the end of Chapin Beach Road.
Do not set your kite up or run your lines out where 4WD trucks can enter/leave the beach (left side). There is usually a rope fence that is up that you need to stay on the water-side of. There is not much room at high tide on the beach. At low tide, best to pump your kite up and walk it out to the edge of the water to set up your lines and launch. Do not rig in front of or around the life guard chair.
Any direction with North.
Anything direction with South.
Rules and Restrictions:
Chapin is a great beach to ride any winds from the North. In between tides there is plenty of flat water space to accommodate large numbers (50+) kites. It's a great place to learn due to the shallow water, as well as for advanced riders to practice their skills. Outside the last sandbar can produce some decent wind waves, bigger with higher winds. At low tide, the water can recede almost a mile out, so launching at nearby Mayflower Beach may be a better option.
Help preserve access at Chapin and follow rules of common sense. Do not rig where the 4x4s drive on the left side, rig closer to the water. Stay away from all restricted Plover areas in the season. This is all to the left. Do not rig in front of the life guard chairs. DO NOT kite in swim zones. EVER. Make sense?
At mid tide, there are some large rocks near the shore & launch area. There are also big areas with many rocks & barnacles near the shore. Watch your feet!
