“Great beach”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Great Beach!
the sand is very very soft.
The water is beautiful.
Besides the famous lighthouse is nearby.
Free parking if you can get one.
(Went there on Friday, thus parking wasn't a problem to me.)

“Great Beach, parking is horrible”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

I've been here several times with my children and it's a wonderful beach. There is a large parking area that overlooks the beach, however it's VERY limited in the time you are allowed to park. It's essentially for folks looking to take some pictures and or drop off/pickup people from the beach. We did get up early and catch a sunrise here, which was incredible.

Reviewed 26 July 2014

Great ocean side beach, with free parking if you time it right, clean and large enough to not get crowded.

“Gotta see the seals at sunset!”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

the best treat of this beach comes as the sun sets. watching the seals play and swim close in as the sunsets is some of the best free fun a Cape visitor or local will find!

“The prettiest lighthouse and prettiest beach on Cape Cod.”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

The town of Chatham is pretty as a postcard. The green grass and shrubbery in the town are as vivid as in Ireland. For some reason sunsets from this spot will take your breath away. Perhaps a meteorologist or a local expert could explain why the natural light makes me want to pull out a camera or a set of brushes. All of Cape Cod is windy. This beach seems to be one of the windiest spots on the Cape. A jacket and a hat may be required at a moments notice. For some reason I have seen more rainbows at this spot than anywhere else on the Cape. The water is colder here than at some more sheltered and shallow beaches.
