If have never seen an untamed beach well here is your chance! You can not swim in the water because there are shark that are eating seals! Yes that is right! The seals are so cute with their little heads bobbing up and down.

The beach has suffered from some north eastern storms. Still a nice beach with a big parking available. I've been here in April and in July. It can get busy on a nice sunny day, so I prefer the beach in April :-)

Dress warmly, but the quiet and beauty of this beach in the frigid cold can't be beat. And you just might see a snowy owl (but don't harass it!)

Great location and one of if not the best ocean beach on the Cape. Liam's snack stand is legendary. Can accommodate a lot of cars for parking.

Just the place to bundle up and take an Thanksgiving walk. Nice wide and clean beach. Plenty of parking available in the off season.

Only a few families there in october. Some had dogs which was nice. Sea lions out playing in water. Big sand cliffs. Not many shells but lots of neat rocks.
