You have got to visit the beaches here. For a small fee you can get a pass that grants you access to all the beaches, which are a must in cape cod.

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.

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..!😘

I like the beaches in the cove areas better, but if you like surf this is a good place. No shade and much much greenery, but interesting activity watching the wind surfers and boats coming into Hyannis Harbor.

We arrived at the beach in late afternoon and most of the earlybirds had gone home for the day......it was quiet and we had plenty of room. The water was great and we stayed until sunset. A great afternoon at the beach!

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.
