Duxbury is best known for its namesake beach, a glacial outwash barrier beach that encloses Duxbury Bay. The community features a number of properties designed for waterfront living, including homes located in the Standish Shores section of town overlooking Duxbury Bay and the Beach. Select homes allow residents to experience the wildlife activity and peaceful surroundings of the tidal marsh while participating in four seasons of boating in and out of Eagles Nest Bay. Select homes in this area include private, deeded access to a neighborhood landing from which to launch a kayak, paddle board or moor a boat. The Ocean Road No. area of Duxbury is an enclave of homes just steps off the pristine sands of the beach used as year-round residences or as investment properties to generate substantial rental income in the summer.
