White Horse Beach

White Horse Beach is a coastal neighborhood in Plymouth located on Cape Cod Bay, south of Priscilla Beach. Legend has it the community was named for a woman who rode her white horse into the water when her father would not let her marry. The Plymouth Recreation Department maintains the area, which extends to the southern end of the beach called Taylor Avenue Beach.

White Horse Beach has distinctive rock walls at each end as well as a rock sticking out of the water with an American flag painted on it. While the harsh winters frequently wash off the paint, the rock is repainted every Fourth of July as part of a neighborhood tradition. The community is well-known for its Independence Day celebrations held on July 3rd, typically commencing with a bonfire. White Horse Beach is also renowned for its Priscilla Beach Theater, a professional center for drama and education near Bartlett Pond.  Read more about White Horse Beach real estate.

More About White Horse Beach Real Estate

White Horse Beach Housing

Most properties in White Horse Beach are gray-shingled homes and beach cottages built in the 1950s and 60s although increasingly, the cottages are being torn down to make way for more contemporary beach homes. White Horse was once known as the “Irish Riviera” because of the many vacationers from Dorchester, Somerville, and South Boston, who would spend summers there in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s. A former beach hotel has been repurposed as the Mayflower Condo community, offering additional housing options.
