We can and do walk to Craigville all summer long. When company comes we can drive to lug all the stuff for a day at the beach. It's only a mile. Craigville and neighboring Covell's Beach are our neighborhood beaches.

not the most beautiful beach...and yet, quite lovely...gets very crowded...I like it best when the crowds have gone...late afternoon wine and snacks is my favorite....you need a resident sticker to park...or to be left off by a van from a nearby inn....or if you're lucky find a parking spot on a nearby street....

Craigville Beach is quintessential Cape Cod! The beach is meticulous, quiet and family oriented, warm water (reaching 74 degrees in July & August) and offers great views of boaters, jet skiers and distant views of the ferry's. If planning on visiting on a weekend, you will need to be there by 10:30 to be assured a parking spot. Fear not,... More

Happened to be on Cape Cod during a full moon lunar eclipse and decided to view it from Criagville Beach. Glad we did. It was pretty cool (and we weren't the only ones with that thought). Parking lot was busy - and everyone there had a good time!

The beach was great! Quiet and clean. The water was great. The lifeguards made sure that everyone stayed safe. Best thing was the intercom announcing "Good Afternoon Craigville Beach!" I loved the atmosphere for the beach. Our teens really enjoyed being there.

The beach is great....beautiful, but you have to pay to get to it. So it will cost you if you just want to take a stroll along the beach.

Craigville Beach offers more parking lot then beach. This is not the iconic Cape Cod beach with sand dunes and gentle surf that you see on all the travel brochures. Beach is also crowded. With all of that being said, if you have very small children you will appreciate the short distance from car to beach, warmer water, no surf,... More

We travelled with 1-year old baby and it was important for us to have a calm and warm water. That's what we found at Craigville beach. Besides,it was clean with all the facilities located very close (including 2 cafés across the road with pretty good food). There were plenty of shelves in the sand but they were not sharp and...
