Craigville Beach is very close to our summer rental in Hyannis so we end up spending most of our beach time here. Its convenient, clean and has plenty of room both on the sand and in the parking lots. We came 3rd week of June so no lifeguards were present however the "hawks" at the gate were present collecting the... More

I have been going to Craigville Beach for many years, once a week day trip. I always enjoyed it tremendously. This last year of 2013 the last week in Aug. they had too many jellyfish and I did get a bad sting on my back. It bothered me for about a month. This however will not keep me from going... More

The beach must be well over 1 mile long. It is cleaned very often and is a good place to spend some relaxing time. Because it is so large there is not a crowd in any one spot. You can find plenty of open space to have your relaxing time on. The ocean is ideal for kids to play in... More

This beach is great especially if you can rent a cottage across the street. Warm bay waters and near the small town of Centerville that has amazing restaurants, stores for shopping, seafood shops and an hour and a half from the tip of the cape and 20-30 minutes from the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. A must visit.

I live very near this beach in the summer and enjoy it almost everyday. Lots of parking and food is available on the beach. Very busy tourist beach so get there early. Always clean and have life guards during the summer months. The water is also warmer on this south side of the Cape.

Walking the beach with few people around …. lots of shells to pick up…a delightful adventure! Off season walking the beach is a wonderful time for reflection.
