Go at different times of the day. In the morning for a quiet walk to the jetty, so beautiful. Go at low tide to hunt for hermit crabs and fish. Enjoy the whole day on the beach and even have an ice cream when the Lewis Bros ice cream truck arrives. Could not ask for more!!

Corn Hill is a nice beach for families with little ones. The beach is very long, flat at low tide, with calm waves, and is shallow at low tide which warmsvthe water. The bottom has some rocks but mostly sandy. And you can see Provincetown in the distance.

This is my all-time favorite beach. You have a view of Provincetown, and of some other buildings and cities along the Cape. It's especially good for watching sunsets. Since the beach is on the smaller side, it makes it easy to watch your little ones. Overall, it's an amazing place to hang out.

Take a break from the tumult on the ocean side to enjoy the ebb and flow of the waves on the beach side. Corn Hill is an excellent place to spread out towels and blankets under an umbrella for the day or afternoon. Expansive parking lot to accommodate the crowds with a wide, manageable boardwalk to the beach. Portable toilets... More

We love this beach and come here every year! (For the last 20-30 years. ) I'm sure it can get very busy but it is often quiet and you can walk a mile toward Provincetown or 6 miles toward Provincetown and a half a mile in the other direction. There is a beautiful little Cove not far and the water... More

The Town of Truro has provided a boardwalk and access mats as well as a surf chair to make this bay-side beach accessible to all.

This is a great beach for everyone but especially families with small children. The surf is usually peaceful and there are tons of sealife when the tide goes out. It can be full of seaweed in some parts but it's large enough that you just move to where there isn't any.

I visited this beautiful bay calm beach in Truro. It is also town managed. Cold Storage beach is the next beach in Truro. Do go if visiting Truro.
