Having caught an enticing glimpse of what was sure to be a spectacular sunset, we raced over to Skaket Beach (never exceeding the speed limit of course!) and caught one of the most exquisite sunsets I've ever seen.

A great place to bring your children. When the tide is out you can spend hours investigating the tidal pools. Little fish, hermit crabs ,etc. keep the little ones entertained for hours,even on a cloudy day. Great swimming too when the tide is in. There is also a great snack bar for lunch.

This is probably the best place to enjoy a cape sunset (I think it's better than Race Point). You have a great view of the sunset over Cape Cod Bay.

Love to take friends here on low tide to walk way out on the 'flats'. See all kinds of fish life, oyster beds and easy walking. Amazing for sunsets too.

This beach is great for children and all who want to float in warm water. It has the best sunsets. The snack bar, public rest rooms & easy parking make it easy to enjoy.

A wonderful beach that is fun to explore at high or low tides. It's also a good beach if you have little ones.

Nice beach and very different depending on the tide. Went for sunset at low tide and you could walk forever almost out to the oysters being farmed. More parking then some of the srea beaches.

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!
