  • Awesome little beach! Couldn't ask for much more- lots of parking, snack shop across the street, and bathrooms on site (note: bathrooms close at 4:30 pm). Parking was $25 a car, but parking pass also....  more

  • Beautiful beach close to The Capt David Kelley B&B. Soft sand and large beach area are very inviting.

  • It’s a great beach to see the sunset (during winter’s time) about the beach, is not as great as I’m used to but one of the best in Cape Cod. During the summer you have access to the restrooms and there are lifesavers as well. There’s plenty of space to park your car too.
  • Very nice if you get there early in the morning and find a spot to set up. We arrived about 8:50 in the morning and it was already starting to get filled up on a Saturday. We had a fantastic family time the water was relatively warm compared to what I thought it would be based on some of the other reviews. The kids had fun running up and down the shoreline but quite a bit of seaweed they had to navigate but not rocky or too many shells compared to some of the other beaches we’ve tried on the Cape. The bathroom was very close and conveniently located on the beach for the kids to use. It was clean and we appreciated that the soap was filled and water was easy to use unlike some public bathrooms. The shower outside the restroom was weak mist so if you are trying to get sand off the kids or yourself, it might be near impossible if you don’t spend a while working at it. Parking was twenty five dollars, I suppose this helps with the lifeguards and the cleanliness of the restrooms. Once it hit about One in the afternoon it was completely packed, very nice people though so it wasn’t a bother with the exception of some people not securing their umbrellas properly so they flew around momentarily. I helped one couple with their umbrella but it almost hit an older couple nearby. There is a place across the street for some fried fish and other snacks so you don’t really have to bring things for the kids or yourself to eat. A nice little spot to sit down and eat. We will definitely return again next year this beach was superior to the 3 others we have tried on the Cape.
