We stopped here to enjoy a beach day but between the handicap spots being far from the beach itself, the fog that day and shark warnings we didn't go in the water. It was a long walk to the waters edge and a lot of sand to climb through to get to the shore. We noticed a ton of seals in the water which was was cute. I looked for seashells since it seemed sketchy to go in. Even with the best of weather, it would have not been the best beach, i wish we dropped off some of our group at the path down to the water before parking.

My husband and I visited here as part of a longer trip. Neither of us had been here before and we really enjoyed it even though it was just a day trip we really enjoyed seeing the seals that are swimming around. It was abnormally cool that day so there were only 2 people in the water, both were surfers trying to catch waves. We were surprised to see all the shark signs! Apparently they are around looking for the seals! So I wouldn’t want to swim anyway! There are few parking spaces, so you have to pay to park down the street and take a tram! Very cool !

This beach was great. There was some very beautiful ocean rocks towards the middle of the beach, and the cliff overlooking the beach was beautiful. The waves were nice and during the summer the beach is accessible by a tram ride.

Beautiful beach reachable by nearby parking and a beach trolley to the entrance. Be sure to go to the right or to the left of the entrance for the sandier beach access as the area directly at the end of the entrance path has the rockiest area to get into the water. Low tide is great for small children as there are some higher sand areas for them to enjoy.

My teenage son and I biked here from a campsite in Brewster. The CCRT brings you right to the access road to Salt Pond visitors center (which we did not see). Then a lush 2 mile pedal to the beach. Stunning views, exceptionally clean beach sand and clear water. Waves were high but swimmable. A few curious seals bobbed nearby. Coast Guard Beach is ideal for walking and the changing room facilities were cleaner than most. Apart from a few greenhead flies, a great beach experience.

We biked here and it was worth the stop. Really beautiful beach and then we went on to Nauset Light and the Three Sisters. A fun day!

We rode our bikes on the Cape Cod Rail Trail and stopped at this beach. Walk about a mile to the right along the shore and at low tide there was a huge group of seals on a sandbar.

Fantastic beach complete with amazing scenery, light house, and trails. Bring bug spray and the good times will follow.

History mixes with scenery here. Watch the seals play. Leave your kites in the car. Look for the sharks. Walk along the beach. Look at the old buildings. Enjoy the picnic tables. Look at the salt marshes and huge panoramic views.

It was a nice beach with a few seals sighted, loved the mat on the walkway to the beach. It is a little bit of a hike to get to the beach but that was ok with us. Sadly the bank behind the beach is eroding and I hope that they are able to do something to stop that before it takes even more of the bank away and endangers the lighthouse and grounds. It was very clean and people were respectful of social distancing.
