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

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. Call the Brewster town hall with any questions, they are very friendly and full of tips. Also go... More

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
