This is my favorite beach. Best aspects: clean sand, warm bay water, beautiful sunsets. Worst: tourists shouting conversations across the beach and the flies after dusk.

We've been coming here for the better part of twenty years. Such a family friendly beach with vast tidal pools to explore. So many little critters for the little ones to find. Razor clams (shells) can be a nuisance from time to time. Hermit crabs (and other species of crab) are everywhere. Low tide is when the fun begins.......one can literally walk out into the bay for what seems like miles in ankle deep water. Beautiful sunsets here;adjacent to Rock Harbor. Safe beach for the wee ones....hence why you'll find the beach littered with families. For a bit more of a thrill, make the short ten minute drive over to Nauset Beach for the Ocean surf.

Skaket is a neat beach. It is a flat beach area and would be great for young children and older people. The colors of the water are always especially bright and blue, green. Very nice beach.

Remember those easy summer visits to the beach when you were a kid? Well, this one is a small, but casual and easy, family beach, with warmer water, parking [$15 on season/$5 off], and great views of Cape Cod Bay -- in any season!

In the summer, Skaket tends to be one of the more crowded Orleans beaches. It's more family-oriented than the ocean beaches, and at high tide can be rather small. In the winter it's a beautiful spot for photography.
