“Beautiful location with beautiful water”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

Herring cove is one of my favorite beaches on the cape. You can park near where you sit if you park at the right lot so you do not have to lug all of your stuff with you. there aren't any dunes so it is easy for the very young and old to access. The water is always crystal clear and there are lots of rocks and shells to poke through. The view of race point light house and the bay just can't be beat!

Miles of sugar white sand beach, plenty of parking, no hassles, isolated - all attributes I found desirable and present at this lovely beach.

“Biked to beach”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Biked to beach several times, to the big area where the parking lot is at and through the marsh to Woodend lighthouse. Saw a seal pop it's head out while sitting on the beach getting sun.
