Paines Creek is a beautiful, peaceful place where you can sit and contemplate, be alone in your thoughts or watch and appreciate the natural wonders year round! It is my private sanctuary, I walk through the beach or on the flats depending on the time of day and regain my inner peace...

The Grandkids love this place because there is always some water to play/swim in. However, parental supervision is advised as tides coming in/out can be strong for weaker smaller swimmers.

Nice spot to see sunset. Beautiful place to visit. A bit Rocky. Lots of bugs, so bring bug spray. Lots of sea shells. Good parking lot. Nice beach.

Great short (~2 or 3 km) trail for an after dinner walk to the seashore through varied terrain with beautiful sky views. Great wonderfully preserved portion of how the Cape was , WAY back when. Easily done with children (or a belly full of seafood!). Lovely.

Love this beach! It's calm, clean. Perfect for a leisurely day or a power walk. So nice! Also, amazing sunsets. Bring wine, cheese/crackers. One of the best bay beaches on Cape Cod.

We visited during low tide. The difference in low and high tides on the bay side is huge. You can walk out quite a way at low tide. The scenery was just gorgeous. One thing to note - the rocks in the main picture here don't go far at all. We were hoping for a nice walk on the rocks... More

A must see for gorgeous sunsets and a good fishing spot out the channel area when the tide goes out. Beautiful area.

Well maintained beach at Paine's Creek. Watched sunset from here while in our car. It was a cold and windy day. Nice area for families in warmer weather.

Enjoyed a short walk at low tide. The parking lot was full even though it was a rather cool April morning. Parking is limited.

Beautiful beach with calm and clear water,rocks, and grasses. It's good for pets and kids. Definitely worth a visit! The only thing to pay attention is that parking is limited (about 20 available). So it may be hard to get to in the summer when the place is busy.
