Briny Beach is by the seashore on the brink of the city which was home to the Baudelaire family. It was accessible via a rickety trolley.

On a hot and sunny day, the beach was crowded with noisy tourists, so the Baudelaire children preferred to visit in gloomier weather, so they could enjoy the quiet and have the entire beach to themselves. They were allowed to do so as long as they returned home by dinner.


The Bad Beginning

Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire were at Briny Beach on the fateful day they found out their parents had perished in a terrible fire that had destroyed their home. When Mr. Poe arrived to deliver the news, Violet skipped rocks and attempting to think up a device which could retrieve them, and Klaus was examining the nearby creatures.[1]

The Grim Grotto

Quigley Quagmire sends a message to Queequeg for the Baudelaires to meet him at Briny Beach. The siblings were surprised to return to the beach and felt they ended up where they started. Mr. Poe met them at the beach again, but this time, the siblings refused to go with him. Rather, seeing a taxi, they entered it, thinking Quigley was inside, but they were greeted by Kit Snicket instead.[2]



Briny Beach takes its name from the poem "The Walrus and the Carpenter" by Lewis Carroll.
