This beach is gorgeous. Was fun exploring looking for shells and shark teeth. Seals come close to shore. Water is beautiful and the view is just stunning.

Long and clean along the surf line for a walk. Breathtaking view from up top. Watch the seals, the sharks and an occasional whale.. Lovely meditation spot.

My husband and I visited this beach while in cape cod and we loved it! We are from Philly and used to very crowded beaches. This one is very off the grid and not crowded at all. Another great bonus was all the seals we...More

It's hard to rate a beach during an October visit, but I'll try. Essentially it was deserted in late October and quiet. Both my wife and I love the ocean, so it was perfect for us. Nice sand and very wide at low tide. Huge...More

This was one of my favorite beaches on our tour. Nice clean sand and a great place to walk. Well worth a stop.

There is plenty of room to spread out on this beach with dunes and soft sand. There is also plenty of parking and great access from the parking. There are restrooms and food there too.

The views on the ocean from this beach are spectacular. Beware of only one thing; there is a parking charge and it isn't cheap! The season with paid parking goes through the end of September rather than just Labor Day.

Parking was a big challenge but we got lucky. If you have trouble with stairs this will be difficult for you. The facilities were very clean with cold showers available.

Yes, pass the lifeguard area. The area is usually roped off and then just past that your pup is allowed.
