I can't claim to be an expert on Cape Cod's beaches but having followed reviews and visited some of those recommended I can definitely say that this beach was the most outstanding. The view of the bay when you pass the restrooms and the food kiosk is stunning and if you walk to the right past the crowds clustered here... More

The sunsets from this beach are breathtaking! You can watch the sun dip lower,lower in the sky until it looks as though the sun has just fallen off the face of the earth. So beautiful. Get there early and enjoy the beach. Dont forget bug spray. The bugs sometimes can be a bit of a pest.

After coming to Cape Cod for several years and experiencing almost all the beaches Skaket beach is one of the most interesting and beautiful. It is the place to go to see a magnificent sunset. If you go at low tide you can walk out for over a mile into the bay and see all the life in the tidal... More

Skaket Beach is one of the only places on the East Coast where you can see the sunset over the ocean. We only went here at night to see the sunset (not to swim), and the views were beautiful. There is also free parking after 4PM. Definitely a worthwhile experience while visiting the Cape.

Wonderful beach at low tide - you can walk for miles. Bring bug spray if going at night -they attack after 6:00 pm. Limited parking so go early but plenty of parking at night with wonderful view of a gorgeous sunset.

Having never visited Skaket Beach I was predicting I would not be impressed with bayside. I am someone who loves to swim in ocean and body surf. While I missed the sound of crashing waves - I have since developed an appreciation for the soft lapping waves bayside. Awesome to walk out during low tide. Friendly oyster farmer to chat... More

In our house we call it Crab-mania bc my kids get to search for all kind of sea creatures including crabs, hermit crabs and minnows in the Tidal pools. There is parking right near the beach (but get there by 10am if you want a spot!) so it's great if you have a lot of gear to schlep. There is... More

This is a great place to come and relax with your family. Low tide makes this a great spot for little ones. No to busy and a lot of spots to sit. Love the food at the stand!

We were travelling with children and this, by far, is our kids' favorite beach anywhere. At high tide, you arrive and can't figure out why you are there. But, at low tide, you can walk for 1/2 mile straight out and still be standing on sand. It is the best skimboarding beach we have ever seen. The kids love collecting... More
