  • I avoid it in the summer due to the crowds but love it in the off season on odd days when i can walk my dog and take in the views. It's fun exploring the nooks and crannies at low tide. Lovely soft sa...  more »

  • It is a nice beach for kids. It is clean and soft beach. When low tide, kids can enjoy the peaceful water like a big pool. There are two issues. First, the parking fee is expensive and cash ONLY. It i...  more »

  • Nice beach. However, $35.00 to park is outrageous. Most places charge $20.00 even down the Cape. Water was a bit cold still on Memorial day. Otherwise, we enjoyed it.
  • A great beach to explore for sea creatures and walk out on the Sand bar during low tide. Our favorite beach in the area. But in the morning on a Saturday traffic can back up over a mile and take 45min to get there. Also parking is expensive.
  • Phenominal beach. Low tide is the time to go. However there is still plenty of beach at high tide. If you want rough surf this is not the place for you. There is a concession stand and bathrooms. Be mindful it is carry in carry out. And yes tide pools and plenty of creatures to explore.
  • Seagulls were more aggressive than usual No swimming jackets or swimming boards were allowed which is stupid. High tide comes very fast ,5 minutes trip to bathroom and our srufdstuff was underwater
  • The best beach in Massachusetts. I love the clean clear water and the views are gorgeous. During low tide it is fun to walk out on the sand bars. Also plenty of parking and free after Labor Day.
