Our late September visit permitted a quick toe dip into the chilly water as we strolled along this beautiful stretch of beach. Do bring a garbage bag, as we did, to collect some of the plastic bottles that the tide brings in from who knows where. Think of it as your contribution to cleaning the enironment!

One of the best near Wellfleet/Truro. Secluded with dunes. Easy to bike to and avoid the parking fee. Best entered from North road.

Beautiful beach but it's a tough walk with small children. And parking is limited. If you can manage to make it on, it is well worth the trek.

This is one of the best dune beaches that I have ever been to. It is a town beach in Truro that I spent the day with friends one of which has a home there. Do go there when in Truro ..You will not be disappointed.

We had an incredibly beautiful walk here Columbus Day weekend. The waves were beautiful with their spindrift, billowing white against the cloudless blue sky. And the color of the sea was so blue. Walking the long beach, with its massive dunes and clay layers , we felt joyful and appreciative. In the winter storms, the broad beach has suffered erosion... More

Truro beaches are unspoiled. They are absolutely beautiful with giant dunes (not to be climbed though). At Ballston you'll enjoy lots of waves and see lots of seals!

We went to Ballston Beach for the day in July. It was not only a beautiful beach but fun for the kids as well. It is a wide long beach. The waves were the right size for kids under 10 to Bogie Board and play in. The kids we were with are good swimmers and used to the ocean. It... More

This is a town beach that requires a resident sticker from mid-June to Labor Day. The beach is nice and wide and is set against undulating cliffs. There are no facilities, and cell phone service is spotty at best because of the height of the cliffs. Near the entrance is a typical family beach. Walking north (to the left) about... More
