Gets crowded, so arrive early for parking. Also, plan a tour of the mansion, which is only open on certain days so check website. Very beautiful and interesting piece of history.

Beautiful place for the sunset and no fee that time of day. Parking lot can be full even at sunset but always during the day with a beach sticker.

I was fortunate enough to rent a vacation home just up Crosby Lane, so I could walk to this beach in just a few minutes. High tide on the bay was great for swimming and low tide was nice for beach walks. I only saw a couple crabs during a whole of visits to this beach and heard about jellyfish... More

Busy beach that locals go to. Stayed one day with shuttle from hotel. Good, but check tide charts for best times to visit.

All the brewster beaches just have port-o-pottys, would be terrific if there was changing room and outdoor showers

I love Crosby in the evening-- few people and great sunsets. During the day, parking is limited and requires a town permit (in advance, can't pay there) so I like to ride my bike. Good for little ones, and fun to explore at low tide-- lots of hermit crabs! A Cape Cod gem!

This is a great beach. Somewhat private, not too crowded (comparatively to other public Cape/RI beaches). Nice to swim during high tide. Just beware of finding a parking spot during busy summer weekends. You may have to park up the road and walk or wait for someone to leave.

The beach is not well publicized, but is easy to find with a good access road & sufficient parking. We enjoyed walking on the beach and watching the sunset. Very quiet location tucked away in residential area off of 6A.

Whatever you do, do not come to Crosby Beach at sunset. I mean, why do you have to see a sunset from the most beautiful spot anyway? I go there to watch the sunset so many days. Who needs all those people, especially in the summer? Think about it,..... You can watch the sunset from Truro, First Encounter, Rock Harbor,... More

The morning we visited, the place was sparsely populated and beautiful. We met some very friendly people.
