Lovely beach with beautiful sands - just watch the parking fees

This is a lovely beach with beautiful sands but from mid May onwards the parking goes up to $20. We got in for free because we were pre season. The car park is next to the beach.

We had our first visit to Sandy Neck last summer - staying with our daughter's family who had rented the magnificent "Seawana" cottage. I'm a local history nut and absolutely overdosed on the wealth of history, lore and trivia which abounds this place. This was a wonderful experience for us all (especially grandchildren) to live "off the grid." "Seawana" has... More

No matter what time of the year one goes to Sandy Neck Beach, you would not be disappointed. The rolling dunes that hide one group from another and are probably some of the most photographed in the world. Bring your blanket or get permission for a bonfire, this will definitely be in your memories, listed under FAVORITES. On a summer... More

This is another beautiful spot on Cape Cod. We went in the evening and it's nice and quiet. To have complete access, one must buy a pass for the vehicle, but it's well worth it and keeps it nice.

I have been going to Sandy Neck Beach for over 40 years, and I never tire of it. The dunes are magnificent, and walking through them on the path takes you away from the cares of the day. The view extends all the way from the Cape Cod Canal Coast Guard station to halfway down the Cape to the east.... More

We spent two mornings walking the beach at Sandy Neck. We walked about 4 miles each day. The sand is packed down due to the 4 wheel drive vehicles that can drive along there during the day. I was disappointed that the shorter trail was closed as I wanted to see more if the dunes even though it is difficult... More

This was nice beach other than it being very rocky. We love the water but had a very hard time finding a spot where you could actually lie on a towel , way too rocky.

I've been going to Sandy Neck Beach for 27 yrs. The view is beautiful. The recent storms have made the beach quite rocky. The water continues to be cold but refreshing. I still prefer the Caribbean.

An awesome place to just hang out for the day or w/e if you have a camper, which we did. We can't wait to go back.
