Beautiful, unspoiled beach with big dunes. Most people spread their blankets within 100 yards of the path to the beach. Walk either direction and you have it to yourself very quickly. The only trouble with Ballston beach is parking on a midseason day at low...More

Best beach in Truro in my opinion. We stayed in Truro for a week and tried all the ocean side beaches and this was our favorite. Waves, easy access from parking lots (no steep hills), no giant tide pools cutting off the beach (like coast...More
