We visited on beautiful late summer day and were so impressed with the beautiful ocean view and uncrowded beach. Great watching the seals all day.

There is no place on the beach site itself to rent equipment. The main road that goes through Cape Cod, all the way up to Provincetown definitely has businesses for all that. I don't know any price information.
