Must visit this beach to feel Cape Cod

Severe damage has occurred during the first weeks of February due to the storms. Visit the beach before it is completely changed!

Really lovely beach, as well as are the beaches within driving distance from this one, that offers lighthouses and are perfect for taking serene pictures. Also, they are not overly crowded beaches. I myself prefer a more relaxed setting, not infiltrated with a bunch of children, (no disrespect to ppl w kids!), and much more low key. Can't wait to... More

This is a great beach but parking is not that convenient. I preferred to go to Skacket Beach as it was quieter and the parking was much more convenient for us. Some days and times you are required to pay for parking so research this before going.

Parking here is much bigger than all near by beaches. It even has a beach house, restaurant on location during high season. But everything was closed in January...... we enjoyed a short walk and its beautiful white sand.

I have loved this beach since I was a kid. I especially love it off-season. Great for seal-watching.

First of all, it is $25 for parking and you better bring your 4x4 because you park right on the beach! We had been in Harwich the day before and the water was surprisingly warm. However, the water at Nauset Beach was FREEZING!!! My husband and I were quite certain that we were not going to make it into the... More

Love Cape Cod beaches. Beautiful stretches of white sand. Tbe sea was rough today, but saw a seal and several whales from a bluff several miles north.

Our absolute favorite spot. Arrive early if you can, stay to the left and enter the beach from there to avoid the huge crowds. Still a short walk to facilities, showers, and Liam's clam shack (best onion rings ever). Perfect in summer, beautiful in the fall. Best time to body surf or boogie board is at LOW TIDE so check...
