Post card sized beach

Come for the tiny beach off a tidal inlet and stay for the 2/10 mile long boardwalk over the salt marsh. Fantastic sunset viewing spot and the beach is perfect for small children.

First time here. Nice rice through a residential area. Long wooden boardwalk to get nice views of Cape Bay. The beach is virtually non-existent. So, I would never come here to swim in the Summer. You could sun, but the tides are extreme and the area is not conducive for swimming. Do yourself a favour and go to Dennis, Brewster... More

Gray's has a wonderful long boardwalk which you can see large crabs crawling along below). The water is perfectly clear there so you can see to the bottom even at high tide. The tidal difference between high and low is pretty dramatic here and happens quickly (so for a brief period there is a bit of a current further out... More

A beautiful Yarmouth spot that overlooks Cape Cod bay. The beach is small but there is a wonderful boardwalk to take a stroll down to take in the Marsh and ocean views . There are also nearby picnic areas and walking trails to enjoy. Also a great spot to catch the sunset on summer evenings. Breathtaking..

This was a great find recommended by our local Innkeepers. We understand that it is open to the general public all of the time, unlike a lot of other beaches on the Cape. that is likely because at high tide the large maesh area is full abd there is very little beach available. The marsh area is extensive and there... More

I can walk to Gray's Beach from my house and do so often. This is a wonderful place to view birds, small fish and enjoy being outside. Easily accessible by older and handicapped individuals. During the summer, a good place for small children to play in shallow water.

This is a small beach where the tides really come into play. A great place for families with young children. There are no showers. Parking is free and you can barbeque nearby.

My husband and I just returned from a 3-night stay on Cape Cod. We were in Yarmouth Port and drove the entire east side of the Cape. Gray's Beach was one of our stops along the way. There is an 800 foot boardwalk at Gray's Beach, and the view and scenery are very pretty. Definitely worth a visit!

One of my favorite places to see the sunset. It has a great boardwalk that goes out into the marsh and provides a great view. It can get buggy with no seeums with low wind but worth the visit.

Gray's Beach is perfect for families. It's never very crowded; there are no waves and when it's low tide you can walk far out. And it's free!
