We have been to the Cape several times and this is the first that we discovered this beautiful beach. We parked in the thirty minute parking and ate our lunch while looking at the beautiful scenery. There are boats that park across the way on...More

We alway stop here when visiting the Cape. It’s such a beautiful beach. We lucked out finding a parking space and spent only about a half hour on the beach. I just wanted to see the ocean for a bit. The water was calm and...More

We went on a day that the weather couldn’t make up its mind. Chilly with occasional rain. Finding parking took a while since it was so busy but it was worth it. Super soft sand felt great between the toes and the kids enjoyed watching...More

Soft sand, protected so no waves. Beautiful dunes. The lighthouse is right across the street. Easy access. Great for young children.

The beach is beautiful,sand like flour. No waves, but the water is clean. Great for kids. Only problem is 1/2 hour parking. Maybe there is additional parking available, but we did not see it marked anywhere

This beach and views from the parking area typifies Cape Cod! The location is a must see for visitors to the Cape. Make sure if you want to go out on the beach you park at the designated location. Parking at the overview is limited...More

Great beach that adds to the lure of white shark watching at Chatham. Seals, warning signs, no swimming. Dangerous rip currents. Not for swimming anyway. Seals a plenty. Go. It’s worth it.

Great beach for little kiddos as far as shallow waters and no surf. Only problem is it gets crowded and has very limited parking. You see lots of people walking from a far.

Great question! There is 30 minute parking in the lot along the road at the beach. It is enforced, and during the summer often not available. There is also a parking lot less than a mile away in Chatham center where parking... More
