Salem to Marblehead, and beaches question

Hi, I was wondering if there's a way to get from Salem to Marblehead. Is there public transportation, trolley, etc? Also, are there any beaches around Salem/Marblehead that we can walk to (don't have a car).

Thanks a bunch everyone!

Salem and Marblehead are adjoining. I would take a cab or ride a bike. It might be a bit far to walk, but if you are used to walking, you could just stride on down Lafayette Avenue and be in Marblehead in about one hour. You could go to Wakikik Beach in Salem for swimming, it is quite scenic, but not really the cleanest swimming. A better idea would be to take the train two or three stops to the North and get off at Singing Beach in Manchester-by-the-Sea. Wow! It is a gorgeous glistneing white sand beach that squeaks when you walk on it - hence the name. Trains run frequently between Salem and Manchester. When you get off follow the crowds with beach chairs and tanning oil to Singing beach which is about a 10 minute walk from the train depot. It has bathrooms and showers and there is a walk on charge of about $5 per person. Quite worth it.
