This beach is on the bay side, so it is protected and the water is much calmer than at beaches on the ocean side. Kind of like a big bath tub. Very pretty with sea grasses growing in the sand and the creek running out to the bay. We visited in late afternoon and it was a very serene, peaceful... More

Paine's Creek is a beach we visit year round. Great place to walk a dog during the off season, great in Spring and just fabulous in the Summer. Being on the bay, the tide goes way out and one can go exploring and discover what lies in tidal pools. Be careful not to get caught out there when the tide... More

This is the beginning of the herring run, so you're in for a treat if you can go in May. The beach also offers great views in both directions of the bay.

Paines Creek is nature at it's best, small enough to be considered secluded, yet a magnificent large space in which to find an area for you to enjoy privately. Very little parking but ideal for watching the sunsets, enjoying a picnic or a stroll along the beach, digging in rock pools.

What a wonderful place to see a sunset! Photographers heaven when the weather is right. Easy walk to the water.

I am reviewing the Paine's Creek beach area. Years ago, when we first started visiting Cape Cod, the Paine's Creek beach was the best of the "garnet-sand" beaches on the cape. The beach is on the Bay side, and you could walk out miles at low tide, among tide pools and stretches of the (more amethyst) colored sand. Either weather... More

The sunsets at Paine's Creek Beach are an event you won't want to miss. In a word they are gorgeous. But instead of trying to articulate their beauty I will just invite you to see the photographic evidence!

We stayed in Brewster, so this beach was conveniently located. We thought the beaches at Nauset, Nauset Light, and First Encounter were superior, but they're obviously farther away (but in the case of Nauset, not much).

This is a nice spot observe the extent of tidal changes on the coast. There are several locations and beaches in Brewster to see this. Great for kids old enough to see the difference.

My family of my husband and kids...6, 4 and 1. I decided to go check out the beach and well, we changed in our minivan to cool down. We got lucky the first space right up next to the path to the beach. A bit rocky. My husband took the 2 oldest and walked across the creek to get a... More
