“Can you walk in the sand?”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Devoted to the Bay beaches, I find this one disappointing, if only because the sand is much coarser and the tide doesn't go out as far as it does on any of the Bay beaches further down the Cape. The good news: you can probably get a parking space if you arrive by 9:30

“One of the nicer Bay Side beaches”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

A nice sandy beach on the Cape Cod Bay. Remember Bay Side = Colder water. Limited parking and constant off road access closures or restrictions. New bath house and restroom facilities.

“One of the worst beaches. Calling this sandy is like calling Greenland green”
Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

The beach is complete covered in rocks. Seriously. You can't walk anywhere including in the water without shoes. There is also very few places you can lay down, again, because every inch between the water and the dunes is covered with rocks. There was no one in the water. When I did go close there was a couple dead crabs and seaweed. There are beautiful sand dunes on the drive up, but amazingly the sand stops about 50 yards from the water. Plus It cost $20!!!!!! Please, don't try to go here for a fun day with the kids. Many other options in cape cod.

“Amazing”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Vast open beach. Great beach combing. Beautiful views. Sandy Neck is a legend. Can't wait to get back for an evening campfire.

“Sandy Neck Beach Rocks”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

haha, play on words. If you're going to the parking lot part of the beach, bring swim shoes...rocks. But the swimming is great, especially at low tide. If you have 4 wheel drive, don't miss the end where the sand is lovely and the water amazing. Great fishing, and family fun.
