Beautiful beach in Dennis MA to go to at dusk and watch the sunset. I couldn't help but take lots of pictures, wishing I could save that moment forever. Absolutely amazing.

Wonderful beach during the off season months - May, early June, September, October - quiet, minimal beach goers, open vistas, well behaved dogs/walkers - great at sunset Summer is another story. Parking is scarce and the beach is packed.

The best time to go to any of the Cape beaches is after tourist season. A great place to see the amazing sunsets the Cape has to offer.

The Cape in the off-season is the best! Wide open beach parking lots and room to walk and play on the sand WITH the dog! Mayflower has lovely soft sand and incredible sunsets.

Great Bayside beach convenient to visitors in the Dennis/ Brewster area. Perfect spot to watch July 4th fireworks! No waves so the crowd is family oriented with lots of seniors as well.
