Head of the Meadow Beach, Truro

(4.9/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
Sit back or get active at Head of the Meadow Beach, which offers everything you could want in a beach. Visit the beach--protected by high sand dunes--and walk across the white sand, then frolic in the tidal pool while it’s shallow. Watch seals playing in the distance and keep your eye on the tide; when it starts to come in, conditions are perfect to learn to surf. Part of Cape Cod National Seashore, the beach offers a decent number of public parking spaces. Lifeguards patrol the beach, which has public facilities including male and female dressing rooms. By using our Truro trip itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Head of the Meadow Beach and other attractions in Truro.
