You can easily bike all the way to the beach from RT 6 or the CCRT and they have bike racks at the beach to avoid the tram's 9:15 to 5:15 schedule and line waiting. This is a very good beach for access for the disabled via a balloon tire chair and mats placed all the way to the beach... More

During the summer months you are not permitted to park in the small lot near Coast Guard beach (named after the large Coast Guard building atop the beach bluff) but instead must take a relatively short shuttle ride from a nearby parking lot. The beach is quite wide and literally stretches for as far as the eye can see in... More

Coast guard beach is has a beautiful long sandy beach. When it is low tide, the beach becomes even wider, and it is lovely to swim in the shallow water. The water is cold, and it is shared with seals, and an occasional white shark. ( when the sharks are around, everybody gets the advise to go out of the... More

Amazing beach, but the National Park service needs to post the rules and regulations online about the shuttle bus which allows lots of beach equipment but not paddle boards and there is no drop off!

Just a very peaceful (except in the height of summer) beach--good for swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, great for kids at low tide, lifeguards are super, Even better in the offseason.

Excellent beach. Take the shuttle or ride your bicycle. Easy access and great waves. Make sure you bring your own food and drinks.

We haven't taken the kids (boys ages 6 and 10) on a beach vacation, ever! We were worried they would be bored. We LOVED this beach. You can bring your dog, which was so cool. At low tide, a large sand bar appears in the middle. If you go to the right of the ramp, the lagoon that forms is... More

We just happen to "wander" on the beach after dinner this evening. It was so pretty and we even saw some seals. It wasn't crowded but then again it was dusk so I don't know what it would be like during the day.

The kids loved this beach. it's one of the Ocean beaches that doesn't have a lot of stairs down to the beach! They have special wheel chairs available to help you get to the beach. If anyone has trouble walking this is the beach to go to! The kids loved the waves, we saw seals everytime we went to the... More

We aimed for Nauset Beach but there was no parking so we ended up here. That said, it's a lovely beach, and the shuttle really isn't an issue as it's a very short wait. Go and enjoy an unspoilt beach area. The water is cold, but that shouldn't be a surprise for Cape visitors.
