sunsets are something to see

Anytime of year from your car on cold days or the beach when its warm. This is a great place to just listen to the quiet and watch the sun dip into the bay

Skaket is the perfect beach for families. At low tides you can walk a very long way. At higher tide, the bottom is perfect sand and seldom with dangerous waves or under toe.

We got told to visit this beach when we had lunch near Orleans. At the time we were traveling with a 2 month old. We just wanted to visit a beach that we could just stop and enjoy the view for a short while. It was a low tide afternoon, there was a lot of shore that kids could play... More

This beach, which is on the bay side of Orleans, features a water line which recedes far out at low tide, allowing one to walk well out into the bay. Great beach for kids. The sunsets tend to be spectacular.

Skaket is best at sunset, preferably at low tide. The sun setting in the distance over the outer Cape & Cape Cod bay are never short of breathtaking. The 10-12 foot tide exchange here makes for seemingly endless sandbars and exploring while taking in the view. A great spot, you won't be disappointed

Perfect for exploring the low tide nature, walk out to the oyster fishermen and chat with them, sunsets are PERFECTION!

Lots of parking is available at sunset time. The beach is easy to access (there is also a short ramp that leads down to the sand). The view of the sunset is really nice. Great beach for little kids, the waves were gentle.
