It's so pretty here. There are so many spots that are worthy of painting, it's easy to spend a lot of time here. And happily there are bathrooms just a couple of blocks away along with a sandwich shop, cafe and a few shops. It's worth just going for a view of the bay.

If you are a photographer, this is the bay beach you should come. With a large area of salt mash on one side, and racks of sea kayaks on the other, you got a lot of colors and background to play with. Not sure if you can actually rent these kayaks though.

Painters love this vista with special sunlight and changing tides. Dogs welcome off season. Beautiful and tranquil.

This is a great area for families with kids in ages young to early teens. There's lots of crabbing, walking, playing around in the water. A nice area as an alternative to the beach.

After reading other reviews I was excited to see the Brewster flats and float along in a tube in this natural "Lazy River." I didn't realize they were mutually exclusive of one another! The beach is beautiful at low tide. You can catch small fish, fiddler crabs, and blue claws in a net but if you want to swim you... More

What I love about Paine's Creek is there isn't much there. Peaceful blend of marsh and sand. Grab ice cream at Kate's come down and enjoy one of the best spots for Sunset anywhere. Believe me I've see a few, Hawaii,Costa Rica, Captiva, California just to name a few.

Used this as the start of our beach walk (tide out). Nice spot although typically limited for facilities.

A scenic creek flows through the marsh and out into Cape Cod Bay. This is a nice short walking destination, and a quiet spot.
