You can walk to this beach from the Sea Coast Inn. It offers views of the harbor and has several different areas to enjoy. The small take out concession actually has some yummy choices. Lots of parking too if you choose to drive.

Great fall day collecting shells. This is a must go Beach. The water was so clean and the air so crisp. A great way to spend an afternoon with friends. Found a few shells to take home too.

Kalmus is split into 2 sections. The first section when you pull in is on the right and that is mostly used for windsurfing. This area can get very windy. If you drive straight back to the end of the lot the other section will be to your left(left of the bathrooms/food court). This is much more serene and great... More

We visited this beach early evening on our first night in Hyannis. It was a little windy, but we sat in our beach chairs & spent a nice hour watching the surfers and the sunset - very beautiful.

The only thing I disliked were the Horseshoe Crabs, hundreds of them, dead on the beach. The beach was stunning though.

easy walking distance from Hyannis, clean sand, shallow water great for swimming. no facilities open when we were there (think they close after Labour Day) but we didn't mind. took 30 minutes casual walk from Hyannis. Sheltered bay so sea wasn't too rough.

We spent two days enjoying Kalmus Beach the week after Labor Day. The weather was a bit iffy (cloudy but warm) and the beach was virtually deserted. The facilities were closed for the season- thus there was no charge to spend the day...fantastic! There were still a couple of Porta-Potties in the parking, if needed. We sat on the Sound... More

We went to this beach the weekend before Labor day and it was not crowded at all It was clean and had a snack bar & bathroom facilities. Charge is $20 but that pass allows access to several area beaches the same day.
