best I can figure out it really is not an island and is part of Mashpee. So as far as things to do, it would not be any different that other advise for the cape.

Since you are on the Upper Cape, Falmouth, Woods Hole and a trip over to MV would be easy. Poppenesset for dinner or just ice cream. Beaches are close but owners can point out the "best" from their home.

Monomoscoy is close to where my sister and her family live. As Neslaw points out, it's really not an Island, but a Peninsula, that eventually makes it's way out into Waquoit Bay.

Raw Bar in Popponessett is just a few miles away. Head here for their famous, HUGE, lobster rolls. There's also some good eating to be had right in the Mashpee Commons area. Cooke's is usually a pretty good bet for fried seafood in a very casual setting. Siena and Bleu for more upscale dining. Cupcake Charlie's is worth a visit.

The best, well known beach that is close to Monomoscoy is South Cape Beach. This is really a nice beach. It's about a 15 minute drive since you'll need to come back off of Monomoscoy, and work your way over and then back down to reach South Cape Beach. But, then again, you'll need to come back off the peninsula to go anywhere. Anyways, do visit this beach if you want a really nice beach setting.

If you have access to any canoes or kayaks, then a trip into the nearby, easily accessible ponds is a good way to spend a few, adventurous hours.

Thank you for the info. Is there anything around for children? We have twin 7 yr old boys. Are there go karts or mini golf in the area? Any good breakfast places nearby? We also have a boat, so would we be able to take the boat from Monomoscoy to South Cape Beach, would they have docks nearby?

Thank you in advance
