You enter the beach from the main entrance to the Samoset Condominium development and if you look to the left you will see association tennis and basketball courts as well as an open field perfect for baseball and softball games. Membership in the beach is not automatic so if you are purchasing a property in  Gunstock Acres or "the Acres" as it is known to locals, be sure that the beach rights are still active for the property you are purchasing as some owners have let them lapse.
