On a good day you can see Provincetown and always Plymouth to the north. Always crowded in summer, it has some significant waves and tialso wonderful at low tide where kids... More

This is an excellent beach for an off road vehicle. My fiancee and I purchase an ORV sticker every year for our jeep. We find that this is the perfect spot for an off road vehicle, juist to relax, listen to some tunes and kick back with some friends. Yes, it is a little rocky in certain areas, but it... More

Great view of the sunrise and sunset. Lots of room on the beach... If you have tender feet wear shoes - there are a lot of rocks to walk over to get to the water. Water is generally frigid during most of the season.

Its a petty beach but its rocky, expensive, and there are no waves at all. Rhode island beaches are much better.

I'm not sure why the ratings for this beach are so high given the many other nice beaches in Massachusetts. With the name Sandy Neck, we assumed that it would be predominantly sand. But instead it's mostly rock, ranging from pebbles to others the size of your fist. Not only is it difficult to get an umbrella into the "sand",... More

This is a natural beach. It's windy some days. The water is North Atlantic so quite cold. Overall, it really is cape cod at its best. We went three times and because of the tides, the experience was different each time. The concession stand had good fast food. The chicken sandwich was great.
