“Good stop along Cape Cod”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Stopped here on a drive along Cape Cod. Beautiful views. A nice beach. Visited this in the off season, so no crowds and parking was plentiful.

“Gorgeous sand dunes”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

The sand dunes must be seen to believe. This beautiful national seashore beach has better parking than coastguard, bathroom facilites and giant waves at high tide,however, the multitude of stairs would be difficult to navigate for anyone with physical limitations. That being said, there is a nice seating area at the top(benches) to take in the view without taking the stairs.

“Incredible views”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

A terrific place to just walk the beach, swim or surf, or just relax on the sand. They have changing rooms, outdoor showers, and real bathrooms and lots of parking. Definitely worth stopping by!

“Big Waves”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Since this beach is on the Atlantic side you are going to get some big waves and possible rip tides, but if you are a strong swimmer like me you will enjoy it. Great bogey boarding and body surfing. But even in late August water is cold.

Access to the beach is by stairs only, didn't see any ramps. But there is a proper bathroom and showers to clean up at which is nice. Parking was $15.
