I visited the beach after Labor day and it was worth driving 2.5 hrs from Boston. The beach is beautiful, calm, and not too crowded. Plenty of parking spaces and public bathrooms are available for visitors. The beach is dog friendly but owners have to follow the rule to keep the dog on leash. Hope to come back again.

Beautiful Beach with many seal visits not crowded but did have those biting flies. Bring a beach chair you'll want to stay forever.

Head of the Meadow (National Seashore) is our favorite beach so we were devastated to learn on the very day 8/8/20 that we started our vacation that the beach parking lot was closed. I know COVID has created many issues regarding safety but this one is a real head scratcher - we still found creative ways to get our family dropped off at the beach and thoroughly enjoyed our time at the beach - but - we couldn't help but notice that the Town of Truro beach parking lot (resident sticker only) was never more than half full - even though the weather was perfect and in the mid to high 80's. I'm sure the National Seashore management team has its agenda for which beaches stay open and which close but after spending one of our beach days at Marconi which was packed and somewhat uncomfortably crowded given COVID restrictions I wonder how they make their decisions. I guess in 2020 no one has logical answers.

This is a beautiful beach with wide beaches, good breezes and large sand dunes as a backdrop. We love when the tide comes in to make what we call the "Sandbar Pool." It was refreshing to swim and jump into the pool without the fear of sharks. My sons loved fishing from the surf's edge and caught striped bass and a bluefish. The stars twinkle above at night. Many days we were there all day and came again in the p.m. to fish and enjoy the night.

Magnificent approach from the parking lot over dramatic sand dune with long views across beach grass. Magical and uncrowded, with a gently sloping soft sandy beach and lovely little natural pools even the littlest kids can enjoy — no rocks, stones, jellyfish or seaweed. Cape Cod at its best — very special ! (Sharks, no swimming)
