Skaket Beach located on the bay side of the Cape in the town of Orleans is a great place to play. The water is warm, and at low tide the water retreats extremely far resulting in a playground like atmosphere. A huge hit for kids...More

Nice place to walk in April, very quiet a bit hidden and you can see all the way to Provincetown at the end of the Cape.

When the tide is out, I'm telling you, you could walk for a mile! It's so interesting to see horseshoe crabs, the fish, the clams. This is a one-of-a-kind beach for couples or families.

Wonderful beach to swim if you prefer the mild waves of the bay. Paved parking, daily fee on season. Bathroom facilities. Small sandy beach, west facing for beautiful sunsets. Sadly, like many bay beaches, grass is fast encroaching on the available beach area, so the...More

Yes they are. However, you must make sure it is anchored. The winds are very strong at times and I have witnessed a heavy metal canopy roll away in the wind because the owner only buried the legs in the sand. The people who... More
