“Terrific sunset”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Best place in Orleans to watch a sunset. Bring your camera! Low tide was beautiful for our last sunset of the week.

“Perfect Sunset”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

When the tide is out, you can walkout for what seems like miles, on beautiful sand, while getting your feet wet. I love going here for the amazing sunsets, and have been doing so for 25 years. The relaxed water seems like a wonderful place for children to play safely, splashing around, without parents' concern about waves. Beautiful place!

“Wonderful, Fun Beach!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We were here in early October and had the beach almost entirely to ourselves. What an awesome beach to play in, especially at low tide! We walked out for hundreds of feet and didn’t even get out ankles wet! Out son had tons of fun playing in the tide pools and checking out the snails, crabs and fish. We were only able to drag him away when the sun set.

“Nice Beach”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

I like this beach as well however preferred the Nauset Beach better than this one.
The beach has washrooms and Washareas to clean your self after the visit.
The Sea waves are not so high so you can actually go and stand in the water easily.
