Nice place to relax

We stopped here for a few hours to rewind. It was the perfect place to let the kids run around and have fun. Some of the most beautiful rocks on the beach. Enjoy!

Beach was very crowded for 4th of July weekend. Beach is rocky. Boardwalk enjoyable but crowded. Limited facilities.

The beach was beautiful. There are different colored rocks everywhere. We were here in June 2015 and it was not crowded at all. The water was freezing, but we enjoyed sitting on the beach watching the ocean & soaking up the sun.

due to its great location it is a warm water beach compared to others. clean sand but did not see any rest rooms. good parking in its own lot.very family friendly. great for adults and kids as well. a very good place to stay in the sun but watch out for burns.

The beach is huge but incredibly rocky. We took walking trail #1 - beware: it's mostly through ankle-deep sand & very difficult to walk on. Okay place to stop & look at the water in the off-season, but I wouldn't want to sit out on the rocky beach or swim here.

Chechpkmthe Barnstable Harbor tidal charts. This beach has great, huge sandbars at low-tide. Kids love the warm water, over the sand. They will also love the tidal pools that form, with many sea critters to identify! There are also 7 miles of well-marked Dune trails, a great work-out, with soft sand on the trails, beautiful scenery!

We were drawn here because we were told you could find sand dollars. When we arrived that was not the case. You may be able to find some in low tide, but it wasn't low tide when we were there. This is anything but sandy there are rocks everywhere, make sure to keep your shoes on!

This beach is loaded with rocks. This is on the bay side of Cape Cod and I've noticed that the water here is quite calm compared to the open ocean side. I like waves so this is not something I enjoy but if you have toddlers or people in your party that don't like waves then this might fit the... More
