“Great beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Very clean beach with bathrooms and changing rooms. The water here is freezing and the tide is stronger. It's definitely not a flat beach where you can wade in, but the view is nice and the water is clean. Some parts are pretty rocky. It's nice that there is a take out stand on the beach, but do yourself a favor and bring your own food. We waited forever in line.

“Great Beach Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Beautiful beach. It was busy, but there is lots of room to spread out and enjoy the sunshine. Highly recommend visiting here while on the Cape.

“beautiful beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

the beach can get crowded, get there early and stake out your spot. Decent beach food and not as pricey as I expected.

“A perfect beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

There is something for everyone at this beach . . . beautiful clear water, large sandy beaches for playing catch, waves for body surfing or boogie boarding. A nice snack bar and large restrooms.

“Perfect beach in Cape Cod”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

I really enjoy this beach, and seems to be very popular because it always gets busy, so get there early. Parking is reasonable and hasn't really increased much since the previous two times I've been. Its quieter away from the water.
