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

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.
