  • The entire area of Cape Cod is a marvel of beaches, picturesque villages, good food and opportunity to spot sea lions. Ideal for spending a few relaxing days.

  • I'll start with parking: All shoulder and parked. There is a huge parking lot facing the beach where an hour like 20 bucks. Had to throw the machine on the far parking lot in the forest and at the local tram to reach the promised beach. Many cyclists. The beach itself: at the entrance sign: Beware of white sharks!) Beach beautiful-Yes. A lot of people. Such an unpleasant and unexpected effect as many-sided wind mode. Like a hairdryer, ice, but warm. Because of this really swim. Brave with the can of beer the American students came to the waist dip. Some met nose-to-nose with sea cat, which is not now in fear the crowds on the shore of the vynyrival periodically and immediately get on photo and recruitment of iPhones in the generally very picturesque places, something reminiscent of the Baltic States due to cold ocean and pine forests. I understand why this Cape a favorite place of all American Presidents. Weather in August is not pleased, it was hot but thunderstorms and downpours.
