We absolutely loved this beach. We arrived in the morning and easily found parking in the lot. The tide goes out really far, and there are a ton of tidal pools to explore with crabs and little fish swimming around. My niece and nephew are 2 and 4, and they loved this beach so much.

Skaket is great for its calm water, hermit crabs and low tides. Worth a visit. Sunsets are great at low tide. Water is also great for Stand Up Paddle.

Gorgeous sunsets and great beach. Parking is free after 4pm and there is a bathouse on the grounds. Go early in the day for swimming and later for strolling way out in very low water. Lots of fun in the sun!

Very unfriendly and rude parking guard. The parking gets full quite quickly, so make sure to be there early. Not going back.

My kids love going here each year when we visit. The water is much warmer than the ocean side and there are plenty of hermit crabs to look at!

Walked out during sunset/low tide, until we couldn't stand the foul ocean reek and the sand fleas and no-see-ums anymore. Enjoyed the rest of the sunset from inside the car.

Wait for low tide, then have fun walking far into the bay, searching for sea shells. Clean beach with nearby bathrooms make it ideal for people with small children. Bring a picnic and stay for the day.

gentle waves but still "rideable." you can swim out far and still touch bottom and be safe with your kids. Onion rings are the best on the Cape, and a good deal for 5 bucks.

This is an enjoyable beach to watch the sunset. The big problem is the flying vermin (known as the no see ums!) They made it almost unbearable.
