The most amazing sunsets you will ever see. It is famous and the smell of the sea, sound of people laughing and enjoying the water and putting another day on Cape Cod to bed by watching the sun go down with brilliant colors and glow.

This beach is awesome! I think it's my favorite cape cod beach so far. The sand is super soft, the water is peaceful and clear. The sun sets right at the sea in front of you. I will definitely come visit here more often!

Skater Beach is one of the best beaches for families with small children. The water is always warm, there are no waves to speak of, and the water is quite shallow for a good distance from the beach line. There are also marshes for children to explore, searching for crabs, shells, etc. the beach is guarded, there is a small... More

We love this beach! The beach itself is fairly small, but once the tide goes out you can spread out and explore. Its a very flat, shallow beach. At low tide you can walk straight out for at least 20 minutes before the water is even waist deep. Our 8 month old son loved crawling around on the sand bars... More

With calm, warmer water- and tides that go way out- this is one of our favorite beaches with kids. There is a bath house, with outdoor rinse shower, and snack bar.

Our family has been visiting Skaket Beach for years, since our daughters were just infants. This is a great beach, warm water, great sand, and a perfect safe place for our children. When the tide is out, our daughters love to swim in the shallow water and explore the low tide sand banks. It is important to get here early... More

This is a great beach for kids on the bay side of the Cape. The shallow water goes way out and the kids can play in waist deep water all day. Very calm and warmer water. It's like a giant sand bar and plenty of room to play. Not a good beach for adults swimmers who need deep water.

Great Beach for Families. Just a couple watch-outs: Be aware that the parking lot is pretty small and the best time to go is during LOW tide when the beach seems to go out for miles.

Going back here again at the end of July. Grand-daughter has a tree nut allergy. Does any one know of a nut free bakery or restaurant on Cape Cod?

We always make it a point to visit every year. Our daughter loves walking on the sand during low tide. We pack a picnic and just prop our beach chairs and umbrella and do nothing - just gaze across the wide expanse of water, watch the tide come in. Life is perfect and this is the beach to make it...
