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

This is a great beach but there are few places to park. Fortunately we were there in October and parking was not a problem.

The sand cliffs, old coast guard station and beach for miles makes this beach very charming. Be prepared though as the parking lot is tiny and you need to take a shuttle from another lot. After waiting 15 minutes we did find a spot but that was after labour day. There are change room and washroom facilities. There was a... More

You won't be disappointed...if you like to surf...this is great. The water is a perfect blue and the lighthouse is beautiful.
