Glorious white sand, fabulous views, good car park (with bathroom facilities). Popular with windsurfers and beachcombers alike.

We visited after Labor Day, so there were no crowds or parking fees. The ocean was calm and the beach was easy to walk - not a big slope to the water. Lots of dead horseshoe crabs mingled up with the seaweed washed up on the beach.

An early morning, low tide, clean sand with the view of great ocean, just take a walk and release all those negativities of one's self, drown by it's serenity and tranquility, peaceful and quite... Love this place..!😘

I like the beaches in the cove areas better, but if you like surf this is a good place. No shade and much much greenery, but interesting activity watching the wind surfers and boats coming into Hyannis Harbor.

We arrived at the beach in late afternoon and most of the earlybirds had gone home for the day......it was quiet and we had plenty of room. The water was great and we stayed until sunset. A great afternoon at the beach!

Pretty and beautiful water with a lifeguard, which is great for small children. The facilities were also clean and useful. Parking pass cost $20 but can be used for all beaches in the area. We had a great visit here.

Great beach close to Main Street. Easy to walk to and find. Water is very shallow for a long way out.

Easy access. Watch out for the shells. Seaweed in the ayer not bothersome. When we were there the snack bar was not open over three days -- so don't count on that , but there are ice cream trucks galore and shower stalls and bathrooms. A weekly pass is $50. Go on line to find out where. $15 a day... More
