“Life's a beach...”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

An unusually long sandy beach for this part of the cape. Great for walking, swimming or just hanging out. All ages, and a family atmosphere. Bath house is clean. Parking can get congested.
On season it's currently $20 parking, but that pass is good for all Barnstable public beaches that day.

“A real Cape Cod Beach”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

This is a real Cape Cod Beach. The beach isn't too wide but perfect for kids and family. Take a picnic or go to one of the many eatery's like Four Seas Ice Cream near by.

“Worth it”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

Nice beach just a short drive from Hyannis where we stayed. Parking was 15 weekdays, 20 on the weekend, but worth the price (you can leave and return here or to one of several other beaches with the one entry price). Very wide beach so even with a lot of people it didn't feel crowded. Not a lot of huge waves, but pretty good swells to make it fun. Lifeguards, bath house, food.

“Craigville Beach, Centerville, MA Great place for a day trip to Cape Cod”
Reviewed 8 July 2013 via mobile

Less than a half hour drive from the Sagamore bridge, Craigville Beach has nice course sand and shells so even if it's windy the sand stays put. The water is warm and today there were nice waves that made it fun to bob up and down. Plenty of lifeguards to ensure your safety and a large bath house with rest rooms and showers. Directly across the street are two places to order food - The Craigville Beach Grill and Barnicles. Only $15 for a beach parking pass for the day!

“Great beach”
Reviewed 28 June 2013

We love Craigville beach. It's clean and there is plenty of parking. Some days the water may be very still but most of the time there are nice size waves to satisfy the whole family! We vacation near Craigville beach every summer. You get a great beach and you don't have to deal with congestion of RT 28 unless you choose to! The Country store and Four Seas Ice Cream are just around the corner! Local food stands offer hamburgers, hotdogs, fries and the like in terms of food.
