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

we like walking several times a day from our condo beach, next to Hyannis Yacht Club, to Kalmus...there is much more wind, so you might see a wind surfer. Kalmus has restrooms, lifeguards and a snack bar

Very easy to get to from downtown Hyannis. Shells along the beach to keep the kids interested. Seaweed was present but I have seen worse

Kalmus Beach is well-maintained and offers great scenic views of the water. Also located close to Korean War Memorial and JFK Memorials.

On our way from Hyannis back to West Dennis, we stopped off at Kalmus beach: The dunes were beautiful, the parking area ample, the boats and beachfront sensational the sand a delight, and the whole was sheltered so that you could choose your level of waves. Since it was late afternoon, there was no charge for the parking. A large... More

We had spent some time earlier in the day at Keyes Memorial Beach just down the road, but still in the town of Hyannis. If you pay the $15 for parking, you can travel between the 3-4 beaches operated by the town of Barnstable (of which Hyannis is a village.) We found Keyes beach to be very seaweedy and had... More

The beach and dunes are beautiful. The water was pretty cold, but clear with visibility ranging from 2-15 feet. There was a fair amount of parking, at $20 a day, if you didn't have a local parking pass. While we appreciated that there were lifeguards on the beach, but they seemed to take their jobs a bit too seriously and... More
