Out of season just no-one to share the beach with. Wonderful. The ocean seams vast from here, the seals just dots. Come at day break - it’s magic.

Cape Cod Beach at its finest - well-patrolled (those pesky man-eating sharks) and absolutely gorgeous beach. Bring your camera or camera phone. Endless sky, endless water, endless goodness and endless peace. Light flows there. Be in it. Even in the dark there is strong light...More

One of several Cape Cod beaches my wife and I continue to visit and enjoy. It's been a few years since our last visit. It's sad how the dunes are vanishing. Thanks for the memories.

Very busy the day we visited. The beach, itself, is huge and has a large parking area adjacent to the dunes. Access was good, with stairs crossing over the dunes. Rest rooms and gift shop on site. Came after Labor Day so any fee was...More

Clean water and watching the seals is amazing. One of the shortest walks to the beach from a parking lot and they have a shuttle service for you.

Coast Guard beach is one of my family's favorite beaches. It's very convenient--parking is available in a large lot and then you take a shuttle tram from there to the beach in season. The beach is huge. There are lifeguards in the summer and the...More

This is a National Park Service beach and the service is excellent. You need to park in a nearby parking lot and ride a tram to get to the beach but it was very convenient. Reminded me of Disney World. Lots of seals in the...More
