Annually we visit Orleans and stay at a home within walking distance to Nauset Beach. As the families we stay with have young children, Skaket Beach is a perfect choice. In the morning the tide is out allowing the children to walk forever. As its in the bay their aren't any waves which is great for the little ones to... More

We have been going to this beach for many years, first with our children and now with them and our grandchildren. It is suggested that you arrive early especially when the tide is in or on its way out. You can walk the flats for almost a half mile and when the tide starts coming in, head toward the beach...

We went to this beach as a family to watch the sun set. We got there about 45 minutes before sun set. We put a blanket down and a few of us sat on it. My kids and their cousin were running around, playing a bit. I don't know if it was from them turning up the sand while running,... More

I have always loved this family beach! It is located on the "bay side" of the Cape. The water is warm, the waves are gentle and when the tide goes out... It goes out!!!! You can walk two towns away on the ocean floor, because there is no water... But be aware, when the tide is coming in, it moves... More

Excellent beach for families. Be sure to check out the tide chart, on a hot day at low tide you may want to go elsewhere. Other than that it is a ton of fun, calm and warmer waters, as well as tons of hermit crabs and fish to delight young scientists and explorers. I wish smoking and recorded music were... More

Soft sandy bottom, shallow, clear water, with concession stand, and bath facilities. Be sure to check tide charts before planning a visit.

Great place to stop for a day if you're in the area. The beach is very sandy and has great views. Parking can be tricky and also a little pricey, but definitely a great place to be on a nice day.

Go at low tide and walk out on the flats for miles (bring a butterfly net to catch the critters caught in the tidal pools!). This is a beach I've been going to since I was a baby and it never disappoints. It's beautiful and great for kids. It truly is a little slice of heaven on earth. Don't miss... More
