A great place : quite wide beaches, natural sand, sheltered from the wind and high waves, not too crowded and with a bit of luck in the company of seals. ,

There is always something to see and enjoy at this beach. From seals to boats coming and going. In warm weather there are windsurfers and para sails about.

A beautiful stretch of beach to walk along watching the seabirds and the seals, as well as wondering if there are great whites swimming in the bay. Downside is lack of parking.

The walk is worth it. We walked in from the farthest point marina, but the beach was pristine and beautiful. Worth spending time out there

Beautiful, quiet place to relax. Watch the seals and families enjoy the water and weather. Great views, Lighthouse and a few exhibits/monuments nearby, easy walk. Free, limited parking (I'd guess 50 slots)

Great question! There is 30 minute parking in the lot along the road at the beach. It is enforced, and during the summer often not available. There is also a parking lot less than a mile away in Chatham center where parking... More
