Tried to visit first on 8 Sept, a Monday (and 1 week after Labor Day), late afternoon, and there were no parking spaces empty. The shuttle lot a little ways away was closed. Came back the next morning before 9am and there was plenty of parking (it's a small lot, for about 40 cars). No charge for parking there. Many... More

Great for dogs when tide's out (and after Labor Day). Rich, colorful sunsets. Broad vistas. Swimming when tide is in, warm inviting ocean water, great for parents with young children who want to hang back and feel safe about their children checking out the beach.

We always enjoy coming back to this beach, it's a little steep getting down to the beach but you can also enjoy the view from the top of the road next to the lighthouse.

You must visit the Cape Cod Seashore, there's none like it in the world!! You have to take a shuttle from the parking lot to the beach. Parking is $15. This is a swimming beach so bring your suit and sunscreen. Amazing views of the ocean. You feel like you're at the end of the world.

Really nice beach, easy to get to, clean and not crowded as we arrived after labour day weekend. You could walk for miles and the hi-light was to arrive when the tide was out to see and experience the seals sun bathing of the sandbar at the south end of the beach.

White sand beach, bracing Cape air, crashing waves, what more do you need? It's a sandy walk down from the parking area, which seems ample but we were on bicycles and it is fall so it wasn't particularly crowded. Bike racks are well placed. Bath house is well appointed, large, plenty of bench seating outside and spigots for rinsing feet.... More

The beach was clean as was the water. Plenty of room and parking was available as were places to lock bikes up while spending time there. It was a very pleasant and relaxing way to spend the day!

We went there with friends by rental bikes, and had no problem leaving the bikes unlocked for the time we stayed (couple of hours). Our 14 month old baby loved it! Sand was clear and clean. I went for a swim with the seals which was so much fun! The water was freezing cold, but after 10 minutes it was... More
