Perfect in fact. Bayside or Sound side, though the Sound is a bit warmer.

agree, and kids LOVE the bayside's tidal flats and pools at low tide.

The Sound and Bay side beaches are great for little kids. You might consider buying them the little 'water/sand shoes' to protect tender toes from sharp shells and rocks. You'll find them at most grocery and drug stores when you arrive. Job Lot often has a good selection too.

Depending on when you come here are some tips. Mayflower on the bayside is very nice and very popular. It fills up fast in the Summer so head over by 10 AM at the latest. It is a little work lugging kids, and stuff down to the beach so IMHO West Dennis is a heck of a lot easier. Park at the beach, toss everything over the railroad ties and there you are...very nice for kids as well.

The bay beaches are perfect for children. The flats go out about a mile at low tide, leaving little pools of water with starfish, hermit crabs, small fish.

Very important with small children!! Check your tide charts! Low tide perfect for small children, high tide, not perfect for small children. It is so easy but often overlooked. We love the Bay side and Village Beach.

Either way you will have a great time.
