Ocean Beach Close to Dennis or "On Way Back" to NJ?

We would like to check out an ocean beach in Cape Cod on our last day here. We are staying in Dennis and have done Chapin Beach already; hope to do Mayflower Beach tomorrow.

Since we'll be heading back to NJ after, a location with a place to rinse off and change would be ideal. Public parking/access too!

Any suggestions? I love TA - couldnt have done this trip without it!!

Well it is not on the way back to NJ ... But if you haven't been to any of the National Seashore beaches you haven't seen Cape Cod. Venture down to Eastham, the Visitors' Center and Nauset Light Beach

If you don't want to go that far then Nauset Beach in Orleans will be good. Big parking lot, food, toilets, and showers and changing rooms.

My favorite beach is Bass River beach in South Yarmouth. It's the next town over from Dennis, heading back to NJ. There is a snack shack and bathrooms. I know there's not a shower inside the bathroom, but they may have one outside the shack. I can't remember.

ISn't that an ocean beach? It's not on the bay side.

Well, it's Nantucket Sound I believe which is not quite the same as what I and others on here think of when we say ocean beach. Maybe it will do for the OP if they don't want to go further down the Cape before leaving for home.
