Was a nice beach, the water was good temperature and the spots to sit were clean of trash. Parking was high $30 but we are on vacation so it is what it is.

Beach is pretty, nice, and long for walking. Water is warm, and parking is easy....but the seaweed ruined it for us personally.

We love West Dennis Beach because you step out of your car, up 3 steps and you are on the beach It is great for walking, either on the beach itself or the long parking lot. Great sunsets.
