Herring Cove beach was a quiet place to experience the Cape Cod National Seashore. We relaxed and read for hours!

“Great beach”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Herring Cove beach is terrific - clean and spacious. Bring sandals or water shoes if rocky beaches are not your thing. And be warned- bring bug spray -nasty little sand flies. If you are driving, the nude section is a very (very) long walk from the parking lot.

“Glorious Vastness”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

One of the most beautiful beaches in the USA. Miles or marshes and beaches. Solitude if you're up for the walk!

“Great!!”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

The beach here is really great. It's a little rockier than most beaches, but you get used to that quickly. The water is so clear. Getting a good spot is a bit of a walk from the parking, so it's better to bike or walk there if you can.

“Would not go back”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Water was super cold, the beach is mostly small rocks so it hurts when you walk barefoot. This is not a beach I would go back to although the scenery was very beautiful. But as beaches go, I've been to the caribbean and to Thailand so my expectations vis-à-vis beaches are quite high...
