Morning walk

Beautiful beach, very clean and safe, water so clear. Walked for miles and only a few people on the beach.

This is a great place to watch the ferries u to the Islands or the kite skiers.... The food stand is amazingly good and you can enjoy dining while viewing the ocean to one side and the bay on the other.

We really enjoyed finding this little gem in Hyannis. It was very clean, plenty big enough with one side a little more secluded than the other, and had a nice snack bar. Not many waves, but a very ocean view and plenty of beach to go for a walk on.

This public beach is very long, west-facing (so, great for sunset photos), and it has both a swimming and surfing area.

Really a beautiful beach to walk but not a great place to swim. The water is usually cloudy ad the beach itself is not Sandy. More like gravel

We walked here from the port and called off prior to visiting Hyannis Main Street. It is a beautifulc, clean beach with lovely white sand nd beautiful sparkling blue clear water. There was not a sole around while we were there but it was Ocober. I would definitely recommend a visit....

Just went for a little while, hope to go back for a longer visit. Even for September it was warm with a breeze. The ocean all sparkling with sun. A good place for photos

My sister and I went to this beach to collect seashells. We went at low tide and weren't disappointed. We went at the end of September so there was hardly anyone else there except for a couple walking their dog and another couple throwing a frisbee. After collecting our shells we headed out to dinner and then returned later to... More
