Bring a few towels, sunblock, camera, and snacks/lunch! Wish we knew there was a sandbar and the place to party! Watch the tides. At low tide there are tons of people swimming, rafting and floating around on noodles. People were all lined up with tents and just teh place to be! Stunning! and Sunset is fabulous here

Want to know more about Brewster? This is the place to go. Learn about the sea captains that made Brewster what it is. Lovely things but the hours are limited. After you go in the museum, take the hiking trail behind the museum and walk to the beach. It's about a mile walk.
