Parking here is much bigger than all near by beaches. It even has a beach house, restaurant on location during high season. But everything was closed in January...... we enjoyed a short walk and its beautiful white sand.

I have loved this beach since I was a kid. I especially love it off-season. Great for seal-watching.

Review of Nauset Rental Vacation Rental: 13 Nauset Rd. in East Orleans, Ma.

First of all, it is $25 for parking and you better bring your 4x4 because you park right on the beach! We had been in Harwich the day before and the water was surprisingly warm. However, the water at Nauset Beach was FREEZING!!! My husband and I were quite certain that we were not going to make it into the... More

Our absolute favorite spot. Arrive early if you can, stay to the left and enter the beach from there to avoid the huge crowds. Still a short walk to facilities, showers, and Liam's clam shack (best onion rings ever). Perfect in summer, beautiful in the fall. Best time to body surf or boogie board is at LOW TIDE so check...

Went to get some fresh air and enjoy the beach. Being a overcast October day, it wasn't crowded and really enjoyed the view and walk.

Nice large beach, soft sand and large parking area. There is a lighthouse to visit also. Went to the beach to watch the full moon rise after we viewed the Sunset on the Brewster flats, both beautiful.

I've been top practically every beach on the Cape and there is no question - Nauset Beach is the best. It has access to the open Atlantic, protected by the National Seas Shore, huge in length, a huge parking lot, plenty of beach for everyone - and a fantastic place to take the kids kiting.

I've been going to Nauset beach all my life. There is nothing like a day at the beach in the summer,but it is wonderful in the fall too. Take a book and enjoy the serenity . The sound of the waves is so calming. Treat yourself.
