Must see

Miles of open water and clean beach sand, swimming is probably pretty cold even in summer as this is open sea water but the location is prefect and the beach impossibly clean

We went there around 5 pm in a sunny day. There was a seal resting on the beach.. Ranger was asking to be far from the animal.. Could not see well.. Nice place to see.. Note on the way place with frogs singing.. Cute!

Went by boat. There's no facilities or bathrooms. Be prepared for Sun, Surf, Fishing etc. Its not crowded at all, and has really interesting weather patterns.

The BEST place to see the sunset on the Cape. We got there just in time to see the sunset and I imagine that trying to catch it in the summer you would have to give yourself plenty of time to get there because of the summer crowds.

This is a great big beach on the North Atlantic side of the Cape. If you have binoculars, you can see the whales jumping out where the whale-watch boats go. Otherwise it's pretty quiet and sort of boring. Go to Herring Cove Beach for longer visits.

I like open air, long walks, bike rides, good food, historical, consigment stores. Meeting new people, traveling too and learn from what they saw.

The beach stretches for miles, there seems to be a section for everyone. You'll find family areas and places that are mostly gay. Find a place that is comfortable and enjoy a day at the beach. Heads up, if you go too far from the main parking area, know that there are no changing or bathrooms facilities.
