“Preserve Skaket!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Truly one of the most magical beaches in the country. I've even heard foreigners say they've never seen anything like it. The beautiful sunsets, the clean warm water, the vast tidal flats. Hard to believe some in town want to put a huge new sewage treatment plant on the marsh that empties into this lovely bay. Let's hope that NEVER happens!

“favorite beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

This is my favorite beach. Best aspects: clean sand, warm bay water, beautiful sunsets. Worst: tourists shouting conversations across the beach and the flies after dusk.

“Beautiful sunsets- Perfect family friendly beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

We've been coming here for the better part of twenty years. Such a family friendly beach with vast tidal pools to explore. So many little critters for the little ones to find. Razor clams (shells) can be a nuisance from time to time. Hermit crabs (and other species of crab) are everywhere. Low tide is when the fun begins.......one can literally walk out into the bay for what seems like miles in ankle deep water. Beautiful sunsets here;adjacent to Rock Harbor. Safe beach for the wee ones....hence why you'll find the beach littered with families. For a bit more of a thrill, make the short ten minute drive over to Nauset Beach for the Ocean surf.

“Pretty Beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Skaket is a neat beach. It is a flat beach area and would be great for young children and older people. The colors of the water are always especially bright and blue, green. Very nice beach.

“Remember the way summer used to be....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Remember those easy summer visits to the beach when you were a kid? Well, this one is a small, but casual and easy, family beach, with warmer water, parking [$15 on season/$5 off], and great views of Cape Cod Bay -- in any season!
