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

This was easily the coolest thing we did in our 2 weeks in the Cape! My 2.5 yo loved it and we walked for hours. Even my cityboy hubs loved it and asked why we didnt start doing this 11 days ago.

Go on a night when low tide occurs at sunset and you will get beautiful reflections in the water added to your sunset view. Should have beautiful views all summer. Easy parking if you get there early. Walk on the rocks or wade in Paine's Creek

Paine's Creek is an artist's dream. I like to go there with my grandkids, take photos, and later paint them. It is scenic, peaceful, and serene. Its a town beach and you need a sticker to park in the few available spots. Before and after beach hours is probably the best time to visit unless you can walk there. Lucky... More

It may be cliché to say that a beach has "many moods", but it is absolutely true about this place. Make sure you visit more than once or twice so that you can experience all the beauty it has to offer.

Spent many a summer's on Paine's Creek, a lot of memories. It has changed quiet a lot over the years, but still a beautiful place to watch a sunset.

Paine's Creek Beach is one of the hidden gems on the Cape. Over the past few years it has suffered some storm damage and a major construction project last summer. It is a Bay beach, with all the wonderful opportunities to walk out onto Brewster Flats at low tide. It also has a creek running down into the area, bringing... More

We go there to watch the sunset, and water fowl. My wife and I enjoy any where there is water and wildlife.
