One of the best beaches in the world. Great for long walks, amazing waves when the surf is up, great for surfers. Most of the beach and parking lot were wiped out in the storm of 1978, but they do have shuttle bus service which is very easy to use and very convenient. Outside showers, inside bathroom and changing rooms,... More

A great place to enjoy nature's beauty and a peaceful walk on the beach to enjoy the ocean waves and sand. A nice small parking lot is near by and the wave were huge and crashing the day we were there.

Clean rest rooms, easy stairs to beach with multiple landings, beautiful rolling dunes, plenty of beach space. Seals galore, the occasional shark sighting, many huge cargo ships on the horizon heading to and fro Boston. Just an awesome place to leave the world behind.

While the view is breathtaking, this is not a place to bring small children. We went two years ago with two children who were 2 and 6 at the time. From the parking area, one must descend more than 100 steps to get to the beach. Not convenient for small children who need to go potty. The bathrooms had no... More

Great to be at the beach off season with our dogs! They loved it whether sleet, rain or snow! Nice to walk and see the ocean

I was here in November and there was plenty of parking but the lot is small as others noted. It's a very nice sandy beach and seeing the seals is fun. There's an overlook if you don't want to walk down to the beach and with the cold weather, I chose to watch from above. I would imagine during high... More

This beach is where my family will have a great time. When you go at low tide a sandbar will appear. The waves are perfect for relaxing or having a lot of fun. The only flaw about this beach is the rocks. They are not all that bad but there is a lot of them. But this beach I have... More

We stopped here while in Cape Cod, after the Park Ranger highly recommended it. It was an absolutely beautiful beach and we loved watching the many seals just off of the coast. We wished we had had more time to enjoy this beach. Many other reviewers discussed the cost of parking here - we were here in October and there... More

You have to park your car and take a tram to get to the beach. But it is well worth the trouble once you get there. Very nice and wide beach. When you are there, check out the sandpiper nests. The seals are fun to watch too!

The parking lot is very small and most part of the parking space is reserved till 11am. We arrived around 11am and after a few minutes waiting we got a spot. The beach is gorgeous and big, you can take a nice walk along the sea. It's very natural and clean. When we visited it was windy and a bit... More
