Head of the Meadow Beach, Truro

4.8
#2 of 6 in Outdoors in Truro
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.
