“An absolutely wonderful place for kids!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

If you're going to be at the Cape with your kids, you can't miss spending a least part of your day at Skaket beach in Orleans. A wonderful little beach where the tide goes out for miles. You're kids will love to run along the sandbars and in the puddles. Fly a kite where there is nothing to interfere with it. Or just make really great sandcastles and wash them get washed away when the tide comes in. There's also a little tidal inlet to float down in your inner tube.

“Fun for small children also fabulous sunsets in the evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

Much better for small children to paddle and swim than Nauset beach (only due to the waves at Nauset). Great for the day but wonderful sunsets in the evening.

Best place in Orleans to watch a sunset. Bring your camera! Low tide was beautiful for our last sunset of the week.

“Perfect Sunset”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

When the tide is out, you can walkout for what seems like miles, on beautiful sand, while getting your feet wet. I love going here for the amazing sunsets, and have been doing so for 25 years. The relaxed water seems like a wonderful place for children to play safely, splashing around, without parents' concern about waves. Beautiful place!

“Wonderful, Fun Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

We were here in early October and had the beach almost entirely to ourselves. What an awesome beach to play in, especially at low tide! We walked out for hundreds of feet and didn’t even get out ankles wet! Out son had tons of fun playing in the tide pools and checking out the snails, crabs and fish. We were only able to drag him away when the sun set.
