“3 separate beaches”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Craigville is divided into 3 beaches. The end closest to Hyannis is a residents only beach that requires a sticker. The center section is a private beach with cabanas & restaurant. The other end is for young people and it is packed with teens and those on their 20's. All have great sandy beaches with great swimming. Lifeguards on duty from 1st weekend in June until Labor day.

“Chilly but beautiful”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

View and fresh air - great hike on the beach pre-season. In the summer it is quite busy and hard to find parking. This is a great time to visit the area - Hyannis and Osterville are minutes away and there's always Four Seas Ice Cream - try the ginger. It's incredibly rich - bring your Lipitor as a chaser!

“Nice, warm, and clean beach”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

We went to this beach last summer in our first visit to cape cod. We were happily surprised with this beach - it was very warm you can enjoy some swimming. It is not suitable for small children just swim with them and/or keep them supervised. It is also very clean with services like bathrooms, showers, restaurants across the street. Just go early to avoid the crowd and get a nice spot.

“Nice beach- but can be very crowded”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Craigville is a south facing beach, so the water is quite warm in the summer. The parking lot fills early, and the beach is sometimes seaweedy and can get very crowded in the height of the season- but it's all part of the old Cape Cod vacation experience!
