Beach itself is lovely. We hear that it's VERY busy on summer days, but we went in mid-September and the weather was perfect!

This beach was beautiful. We stopped for only a few hours before heading home. It was rocky, but loved to walk the beach. It was peaceful and breathtaking.

Best seen from the water. You can see this from any of the charter boats out of Barnstable Harbor. It is just beautiful.
