Herring Cove Beach reviews
Go here we just discovered it last week wow. Ocean and endless beach🌴. Everyone was social distance. Maybe one couple was not masking it. more »
It is a typical Cape Cod beach. Pretty , expansive and I am sure a good place to sun bathe if you are into that kind of thing. A great place to take a walk and soak up the sights and sounds As for..... more »
This has to be one of the greatest beaches around. it is very wide and has a decent amount of parking. There is a nice "snack bar", but it's much nicer than you think. It is more of a restaurant with counter service. There is live music there and tons of locals bring their chairs and line the path to listen. When the sun is setting they made a fire on the beach and people were swing dancing. It was a great evening walking the beach and watching the sun set and skipping rocks and collecting the cool ones. There are nice bathroom facilities there as well.
Quaint beach with calm surf. Coarse sand that doesn't stick everywhere. Plenty of parking. We arrived around 430 pm and did not have to pay for parking. There is a well marked bike trail that leads to the northern edge of the Cape. Good spot to enjoy the sunset.
