Watch: South Coast Region, MA

Comprising the towns of Fairhaven, New Bedford, Dartmouth, South Dartmouth and Westport, the South Coast Region brims with possibilities for the visitor looking for a unique marine experience. Bordering the western shore of Buzzards Bay, the region offers exciting opportunities for sailing, power boating, fishing, paddling, clamming, nature photography, coastal biking, and more.

On shore you’ll find great restaurants, ice cream shops, galleries, museums, shops and more catering to every taste imaginable. Check out quaint villages or the larger hubs of New Bedford, Fall River, and Fairhaven. Take a scenic paddle along the peaceful Slocums River or ride the surface at sprawling Horseback Beach. Hike the numerous trails leading through meadows and coastal woodlands, or fish for stripers, bluefish, sea bass and false albacore in the open waters of Buzzards Bay.
