Your standard, average beach: sand, water and people. If you want something extraordinary, go to Longnook Beach.

This beach is very nice and you can find shells on this beach. It could be a problem for people who have difficulty walking on sand because it is an uphill walk to get to the beach. Very nice beach and seals do come around...More

This is our new favorite beach. The kids loved the tidal pool and being able to skimboard. The water was clear and not freezing. We saw a couple seals swimming by. Very nice clean beach but rocky towards the edge of the water

This review concerns the National Seashore side. The beachfront is shared with the Town of Truro, whose beach is just south.. Separate access, parking, life guards. But it's the same beautiful ocean whichever side you're on! And of course once you are planted in the...More

The Head of the Meadow Beach has soothing soft sands and if you look closely, you can see small groups of seals bobbing up and down in the water. This is part of the national shoreline and is all natural beach. A must see if...More
