Last year, we had a clambake at Singing Beach in Manchester-by-Sea. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful beach, but there was one logistical drawback: you're not allowed to build a bonfire on the beach. We solved the problem by bringing a fleet of Hibatchis to heat the rocks. It worked, but it lacked a certain aesthetic appeal.
Does anyone know of a beach within two hour's drive of Boston where we can build a bonfire on the beach?
