Great beach, not too crowded

Visiting during the off-season, access to the beach was easy and there were very few people using the beach.

First Saturday in 2016 - a brisk walk on Coast Guard Beach. Plenty of other visitors. Dogs are welcome but must be on a leash - off season.

Coast Guard beach has always been a great beach with a lot of history. Granted it it is sometimes hard to access but it is worth the visit. There is a parking fee during the summer months as it does get busy, managed by the National Seashore Rangers that I commend for their service.

All beaches on the Cape are beautiful, and Coast Guard Beach is no exception. Allow time to stroll, dip your toes in the water. I especially like the beaches in the off season. It's still warm and far less crowded. Parking is also free in the off season.

We went to the Coast Guard Beach on a windy, November day. The beach was very clean and there was very little seaweed. The sand is rather soft which can be challenging for some. There were seals just off shore checking us out and we were checking them out. What was really nice was that everyone was very friendly. Parking... More

Visited the Cape Cod area in August before heading to Newport for a wedding. My wife and I had heard all of the great things about Coast Guard Beach and really wanted to visit. Unfortunately the day we arrived in this area there was a torrential down pour and we were forced to stay in our motel for the entire... More

A beautiful beach that stretches for miles, beautifully sandy with great big dunes to shelter you. Watch seals play and easy parking. If I lived closer I'd be there every day

The Cape has many of the best beaches we have been. We are not beach people but we loved the beauty of a bea h without hoards of people. Of course it was too cold to swim ( and there is a big sign telling us that there are Great Whites in the area). Walking along the shore and watching... More

This is one of the most beautiful beaches in Massachusetts! So clean, powdery white sand, lots and lots of room, changing areas and toilets. You can walk forever and watch the playful and curious seals! In the summer you have to take the shuttle as there is very limited parking. We were lucky to arrive early on an October Saturday...

We came to Coast Guard beach to watch the seals as they were coming in for a rest. They were fun to watch, and lot's of them for picture taking. We went around 5 pm as was recommend by the folks at the Salt Pond visitors center. This beach had a very nice & well kept bathroom & changing room... More
