We enjoyed our day at the beach here. It doesn't score the top mark because I wasn't a fan of the seaweed in the water as you immediately went in. Past this, it was a big beach so had plenty of room. It was clean, had good toilet facilities with a snack bar, outdoor showers, even a sun screen station.... More

Kalmus beach is absolutely gorgeous! It is quiet, clean, and just beautiful. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the beach had bathrooms and a snack bar (with lots of options!), so we could stay the day. I would highly recommend!

Always plenty of room and convenient. A true pleasure, never far from the parking lot. Snack bar and bathrooms clean. Great views on both sides. Highly recommended.

This was the first beach we went to. It was pretty calm water except when the waves made by the boat reached shore.There is also a lot of seaweed but really warm water. It was nice white sand. There are a lot of horseshoe crab shells on beach which is interesting for kids. There are bathrooms and a snack bar... More

great sunset view, but insanely buggy the evening we stayed, and we, and everyone else, left in a hurry or hid in our cars to watch the sun set. has a snack bar, portapotty for when the beach restrooms close, and parking is free after 4:30.

Great beach, public restrooms and good good snack bar. Life guard in peak times. $10 parking charge but well worth it

Went here in the late afternoon and had no trouble parking. Beautiful beach with wonderful views of the Atlantic Ocean. On the other side is Hyannis Inner Harbor and fantastic boats everywhere. Be careful though as there are a lot of Horseshoe Crabs on the beach and a lot of seaweed.

Great beach with awesome snack bar. There are two sides to this beach with a dune in the middle. One side was windy and wavy, with great swimming and lots of windsurfers. The other side was protected in the harbor which made the water very flat and awesome for the 1 year old. The beach on the harbor side is... More
