Go at low tide and you can walk for miles at the water's edge in bare feet. Then go see the sunset to the west and the full moon rise in the east. What a magnificent sight. Look left at the sun setting into the ocean and look right at the full moon rising from the ocean. (Only happens at certain times in the year, of course.) But well worth the experience. Truly one of those experiences that you will never forget. It is an eclectic beach. It has everything.....
Sand dunes, rocks galore, sandy sections, rocky sections, off road trails......a true adventure.

Very nice beach, not too busy, clean bathroom/changing room, food available. Make sure to wear beach shoes or flip flops as the beach is VERY rocky and kills your feet. We found lots of really cool rocks to add to our collection. $15 to park for the day and in a nice town with cute shops to visit on your way home from the beach.

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.
