What we love about CGB is that it is a long stretch of sand, great waves and limited crowds. The journey it takes you to get there is more than most beaches which is why it is often less over run. We love rock hunting and there are a few great finds. The dunes are great to look at, perfect... More

Beautiful cape cod beach. We rode our bikes out here on a warm June day and just relaxed while gazing out at the beautiful blue water. Lovely, lovely place.

One of my favorite beaches in the world. But please do not let anyone know ;) We visit the Upper Cape several times a year (my in-laws live there). CG Beach is always a stop we make. Fall, winter, spring, summer, it does not matter. The Beach is always beautiful, vibrant, and fun. The only challenge is in the summer... More

Well, taking a shuttle from the parking lot is a pita. after that, the beach is picturesque, but small. the actual beach at waterline is rocky, as usual in this area. there are good facilities (rest rooms) at the coast guard house near the shuttle pick up. that is nice.

This Beach is So Nice. No refreshments available though. Waves. Peace. Not overcrowded. Only regret we didn't attempt walk to nauset Beach. I think the waves were rather large for little ones..

Just a beautiful place to spend time. Storms and winters are favorites... no crowds and big waves. The wind can be strong and the temps cold, but solitude at its best.

We went to this beach after the first beach we tried was closed, due to no parking. We rode the shuttle to the beach and had a picnic while watching the sea lions swim in the ocean. We walked up to the next beach in about an hour to view the beautiful lighthouse. It was an amazing experience and I... More

We ended up at Coast Guard Beach because the parking lot at Nauset was full (it was late in the day). You have to park into in the lot ($15) and take the beach shuttle, but the shuttle came quickly and because it was late we were the only ones on it. The beach was still busy and beautiful. It...

One of the beautiful beaches on the ocea side near the Cape Cod Visitors Center. This is set on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic with stairs descending to the beach below. Good restrooms and changing facilities with access to an occasional food truck. The old Coast Guard Station has been moved and reconstructed at this site so, making the area... More

We have visited this beach a few times and it always amazes me at how beautiful it is. Plenty of space, always clean and the view is beautiful.
