We went there twice and both times we were amazed on how low the water was. We walked out to what looked like two miles out on the flat damp sand before we turned back. It probably was just under a mile judging by the...More

Easy to access beach with a western view of incredible sunsets. At low tide the beach changes substantially, need to walk quite a distance to swim. Great for young kids and very accessible for those who are less mobile - not too far to walk...More

We have been vacationing at Skaket Beach on the Bay side of Cape Cod since our Honeymoon 28 summers ago. It is an ideal location for us as our 27 year old son is physically challenged. Access to the beach is the easiest we have...More

I would recommend this beach to anybody. It is warm with clear water and plenty of parking. Go for a sunset swim but mind the tides, when its low, there is no water at all.

Skaket beach is such a lovely, low maintenance beach for young children. We went with our toddler and infant and appreciated the easy access to the parking lot. There’s a ramp which was helpful when lugging our wagon full of beach gear, bathrooms were clean...More

Nope. It will cost you $25 for a day of parking. Skaket is in Orleans so you would need an Orleans pass.

Yes they are. However, you must make sure it is anchored. The winds are very strong at times and I have witnessed a heavy metal canopy roll away in the wind because the owner only buried the legs in the sand. The people who... More
