Once a beach vacation destination for Bostonians, Winthrop's Point Shirley is full of seasonal bungalows. It has views of Boston Harbor on the western side. Views of the Atlantic on the eastern side.
Point Shirley is almost an island. It's connected to Winthrop's Cottage Hill Neighborhood by a strip of land just large enough for Yirrell Beach, Shirley St and one row of houses.
Local's love to walk or run around Deer Island, just off Point Shirley's southeastern tip. Children can play at Coughlin Park. Or build sand castles at Yirrell Beach. All are a short walk from anywhere in Point Shirley.
"The Point" has amazing sunsets. In the evening you will see photographers and tourists setting up along Grand View Ave. Getting ready for the perfect shot of Boston Harbor as the sun descends for the night.
Today, most of its homes have been converted for year-round use. Making Point Shirley a great place to buy a home.
