  • You need a sticker for this beach and if you don't get there early on good beach days, you could sit in your car in line for a half hour. So get there early (not sure what time they open). They have l...  more »

  • I love doing things off season to avoid crowds. It was an unseasonably warm fall day; therefore, it was a perfect day to visit the beach for sunset. We arrived late enough, so we did not have to pay f...  more »

  • South Cape Park is excellent place to take the family. One of the best beaches on Cape Cod. Park includes trails with overlooks for spectacular views. Beach itself goes on about 2 miles--nice walk too.
  • Nice beach watch the little ones It does drop off in the water quick but lots of sand great paths to explore and a wonderful sunset
  • Small out of the way beach with gorgeous views. Parking is a little expensive for this spot, but that helps keep out the riff raff. Has outhouses, changing booths and picnic area
  • Very long Beach with plenty of space for everyone, if you want to walk (or if you're lucky enough to get a closer spot). Sand is super soft. isn't terribly crowded. After 5pm parking is free.
  • Good times, 50 dollar parking pass for the week. Not very crowded.
