Owner description: This scenic stretch of beach on charming Cape Cod is perfect for relaxing, birdwatching and hiking.
Reviewed August 1, 2011

Having never been to the cape before with our three young kids we picked up a local travel book titled "Kids on the Cape". In there it actually recommended Sandy Neck beach on the bay side. It was absolutely horrible and nearly impossible to walk three little girls over all the rocks. It was a bit dangerous to be honest. Would never recommend this beach to anyone who actually wants to walk anywhere near the water. Sorry we wasted $20.

Get your Off Road sticker and enjoy driving out and "camping" on the beach. The beach is beautiful and in low tide you can put your chairs further out beyond the rocky area. Yes there are plenty of rocks(wear water shoes or flip flops) and they come in all kinds of colors (kids love collecting them). But this is a lovely place to spend an entire day, setting a fire and making smore's. Relax and De stress!

After waiting in a line of cars to get in and paying $20 we were very disappointed that the entire beach is covered in various sizes of rocks. Not a fun place if your idea of a beach is soft sand and building sand castles. The kids had to wear shoes except for almost right in front of the ocean. With all the options at the Cape we will never go back.

This stretch of beach was quite lovely and deserted when we visited it in September. It was a very good "rock hunting" beach but still sandy enough to be able to lay down blankets or towels. Bathrooms with full plumbing were also easily accessible.
