The water is cold and a bit rough. Still, I know visitors who claim that this is "one of the best beaches in America." It's a wonderful place for walking.

Very enjoyable short bike ride to the beach. Facilities maintained well. All ages at this beach. Not too crowded in the morning.

This is one of several picturesque Cape beaches with the Coast Guard Station as a back drop. Great views of the ocean and the adjacent salt marsh for those interested in birding. One of the great features is the ability to bicycle to the beach. Parking is essentially nonexistent during peak season, you can take the shuttle bus from the... More

The lighthouse and Coast Guard lifeboat station is a classic, and the beach in the most beautiful, even Henry Thoreau lived and wrote here.

We came in the off-season (April) but the beach was lovely to walk on. We could bring our dog (on a leash). There was only one picnic table that we saw, and it was occupied, which meant we ate our lunch in the car. The views are quite beautiful though. Worth a trip.

This was a great beach but it is the only one on the Cape Cod National Seashore that is not dog friendly. Dogs are not allowed on the shuttle that takes you from the parking lot to the beach. The staff was really nice when we asked them about this.

One of our favorite places on Cape Cod! We've only been a couple of times, but will go back multiple times in the near future. Clean beach, miles to just walk or you could swim if you're brave enough (very cold water). We've been both in the spring (May) and also in the fall (October) and both times it was... More

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
