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.

  • What can I say about Ptown and its beaches. Their beaches as beautiful but you do need to be very careful as sharks have been sighted numerous times. The beach is wide and very clean.  more »
  • The surf was a little rough the day we visited- but the water was refreshing and the beach was clean. No lifeguard. Clean bathrooms.  more »
