Nice family evening at the beach

A great place to go to watch the sun set. Spectacular. White sand beach and calm water since it's on the Bay side of the Cape.

Tide-pool at low tide and walk for miles, build castles, enjoy a grilled chicken sandwich from the food bar for lunch. Warm bayside waters even at high tide, when you can swim. We LOVE this beach!

When the tide is out you can literally walk a mile out into the ocean! We learned about the oyster beds from some very nice, friendly residents that harvest them there. The water is so warm and the ocean is calm. This is my new favorite beach anywhere!

Great clean beach. Good food too. We went with a group and had fun. The water was clean. There was a grassy area in the water which kinda divided the beach. Plenty of area to play a game.

These oyster beds have been there just over 5 years in 2016. The guys are really nice to talk to. These oyster beds are covered about 10 feed during high tide and this is picture of low tide. Very remarkable.

Warm sea with loads of small fish to see in water. Fantastic sunset is an obvious pull as loads of people turned up to witness

This beach can be tons of fun at low tide. You can walk for miles out into Cape Cod Bay; go crabbing, build sand castles play frizbee and more.
