“Great beach for kids who love to explore and build sandcastles!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2011

We came late in the afternoon and all you could see for about 1/2 mile was sand and tide pools. We had fun walking through the tidal pools and exploring the sea life (hermit crabs, minnows, and even a squid!). Great sandcastle building sand! Just be aware of when the tide comes in so that you are not too far out.

“Perfect Beach for Young Families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2011

I've been going to Skaket Beach since I was a toddler... and now I'm bringing my own babies! Bay side, warm water with soft sand that allows the toddlers to splash and play easily in the surf. The water is very calm and it's easy to just float and relax. Lifeguards, bathrooms and snack hut make the day enjoyable for all. Just the perfect way for young families to enjoy the cape. Get there early - there is limited parking.
