I have been going here for 35 years. Unique in that you have the bay side which is perfect for families with small children and then the ocean side where there is windsurfing. Love this beach!

Clearly, I visited on the off season. But it was a beautiful sunny weekday and the beach was clean and stretched forever. This is a nice place to pick up small shells or to watch the ferries make their way in and out of Hyannis Harbor. For a place so close to town, it was extraordinarily quiet. If you are... More

If you are looking for large waves, look elsewhere. If you want a beach near Hyannis Harbor, the marina, the restaurants. This is your beach. If you want a beach good for kids. This is your beach.

This is the beach I normally go to when I go to the Cape, as it is walking distance from the place I normally stay. In season, the water is warm, but sadly there is not much in the way of waves. Still, the water is very good. There are a lot of seashells there, though most of them are... More

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..!😘
