Craigville Beach offers more parking lot then beach. This is not the iconic Cape Cod beach with sand dunes and gentle surf that you see on all the travel brochures. Beach is also crowded. With all of that being said, if you have very small children you will appreciate the short distance from car to beach, warmer water, no surf,... More

We travelled with 1-year old baby and it was important for us to have a calm and warm water. That's what we found at Craigville beach. Besides,it was clean with all the facilities located very close (including 2 cafés across the road with pretty good food). There were plenty of shelves in the sand but they were not sharp and...

Clean beach, easy to park (for a fee,) bathroom facilities, lifeguards (and all the rules that come along with lifeguards at the beach.) Nice spot for a walk or swim. Lots of folks of all different ages enjoying the calm, somewhat protected waters (no waves to speak of when we visited.) The beach is set in a larger crescent, with... More

Best thing about this beach is its water temperature which must be in 70s, feels warm and nice minus the seaweed and murkiness. It is easy to get to and close to all the other attractions Hyannis has to offer. Parking is $20. No kite flying or beach ball, otherwise one of the life guards will approach and give you... More

A really nice clean beach with ample parking and restrooms nearby. There are a couple of cafes just a short walk away that server all manner of food and drink. The beach is sheltered and the water warmer than come of the Atlantic facing beaches.

The beach was clean and had very active lifeguards watching all. There was room for everyone to be comfortable on the beach. The parking lot was big and right on top of beach so you didn't have to walk far to setup. The bathrooms were clean in the morning but when 12 noon came they were very dirty and quite... More

15.00 will get you a parking spot with not far to walk. You can leave and re-enter without having to pay again which may come in handy. The beach faces south on Nantucket Sound. Great sand and not much surf which makes this a terrific beach for families with small kids. There were all ages at this beach, not just... More

The beach is so clean! The water was warm and there were so many pretty shells. Great beach for families. Parking lot is right next to the beach. We literally stepped out of the car and were on the beach. There are bathrooms and reasonably priced ice cream nearby.
