With lifeguards from Memorial Day to Labor Day and shallow water you will find lots of young families here enjoying the beach. It is protected and the waves are very small. Great place to take a dip and you don't need to be a strong...More

This a stretch of a beach several miles long. Usually calmer seas than some other parts of the island. In season you need to get there early to find parking. No facilities but very popular.

Got here early on an overcast morning to beat the crowd and get a parking spot. Beautiful sand and mostly an easy entry into the water. The parking and beach can get crowded as the morning progresses but it will be worth the effort to...More

The Bend in the Road Beach is a great place to relax, read a book, or hunt for shells. Good swimming as waves are small. Lifeguard on duty for the swimmers.

A really cute beach and great for kids since the waves are very calm. However, bring their water shoes. The sand is more like shells and rocks, tough to walk around without footwear.

Located on a curved cove on Beach Road, this is a great beach for everyone, but especially those with smaller children. The water is normally calm (this August it was a bit more choppy that usual). Great beach to walk on. There is a life...More

The water warms up quickly in season. Shallow smooth bottom. Most days the breeze is mild and off the land.

Great family beach. Calm water, great views and close to parking and bike path. We had bikes but I would guess on a busy day, parking your car might be difficult. It's worth waiting for a space!

This is a great beach for all. Especially great for families with children as the ocean is very calm

#13 bus stops there, tell the driver when you get on. Better for you is Inkwell Beach within walking distance of the Oak Bluffs Ferry terminal. Unlike Inkwell, Bend in the road is too isolated (IMO) for your family - no... More
