The Inlet is not Nauset or Coast Guard Beaches. Located in Eastham, and accessible only via boat or by walking north from Nauset Heights in Orleans, you will find a narrow slot in the barrier beach with a swiftly flowing current. Although beautiful, it can be dangerous to inexperienced boaters as the currents empty into the breakers and surf of... More

Just a stretch of water, that is like saying The Mona Lisa is just a picture. This little piece of water is peace and quiet, with a hint of magic and beauty thrown in to keep you spellbound. We just sat for an hour or so just relaxing, if you can go and see it.

Not much more to say other than it is a great place to look at. Get out and put your toes in the sand. Along with Nauset Beach this is Orleans at it's best. The snack shop at the beach has pretty good food too.

This is one of the treasures of the town of Orleans. The beach constantly changes with each storm that passes our way. This is a barrier beach to the far east of our town.

It was a gorgeous day, seals, birds, sail boats and sun! Sand is white and clean, great waves! We were there in September, not crowded and free. We loved it!

The beaches on the eastern coast of Cape Cod are among the the most beautiful you'll see in the United States. There is empty white sand for miles and plenty of activity for any beach goers pleasure including sand bars for little children to play on, surf, fishing and abundant wildlife seldom seen in other places. Obviously, there is plenty... More

Excellent beach. Only land owners can drive to the inlet, but boaters can get there as well. Wide open expanse of sand. Only downside is when the Piping Plovers choose to nest in the ORV tracks, thus forcing a closure.

This beach is amazing. Any given day you can see sea lions chasing down schools of fish. They will surface just past the break and look up at everyone on the beach...really cool. The waves are thunderous...and wash up alot of great shells and rocks. The one down side...the water us damn cold! On June 26, 2012 the water was... More
