We have been coming to this area for the past 25 years and find this beach to be the best for all ages, clean sand with lots of little pools left behind when the tide is out for kids to play in.

Love it during sunset and when the tide is low. You can walk the flats and enjoy the beautiful sunset. A definite stop for anyone visiting the area.

We arrived at 9am on a Labor Day weekend Saturday, after our drive into the Cape. There was plenty of parking (and in fact, to address parking concerns, the lot didn't fill up until close to noon), and it was so peaceful that early in the morning. The beach is small but during low tide, there are tons of "pools"... More

The sunset here is spectacular. Great beach for young kids, but don't expect waves on the bay. Neat spot to explore at low tide. Get there early, parking is very limited but if you take a bike it is not far off the bike trail.

Also, enjoyed this beach it was small and very family friendly. We arrived at 4 and parking was free starting at 4. Plenty of room to swim, play or relax on beach. The beach and parking area was clean.

Located on Cape Cod Bay, the waters are clear and shallow and warm compared to the ocean side of the Cape. Skaket Beach is perfect for children, and they'll love it when the tide goes out. The wide sand flats are easy to walk on. Beaches on the Cape Cod Bay side take a little planning, especially during peak season.... More

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
