Cape Cod Beaches
Cape Cod is the perfect place to relax and unwind in the sunshine! With beaches surrounding the towns, you are never more than a stones throw away from a gorgeous beach, and minutes away from digging your toes in the sand. Take a look at our favorite beaches below.
Kalmus Park Beach (10 Mins away)
Kalmus Beach at the end of Ocean Street in Hyannis is considered by some to offer the best windsurfing on the Cape in the spring, summer and fall. The steady breezes, warm waters and consistent waves off Nantucket Sound draw windsurfers from all over. A beach house at the end of the lot provides restrooms, showers and a tasty snack bar. This is a large beach with plenty of parking space to accommodate visitors.
Craigville Beach (15 Mins away)
Probably the most popular beach in Barnstable, Craigville is a favorite of teens and college students, but appeals to all ages. The massive beach area allows for lots of sunbathers and swimmers, and the parking lot holds an equal amount of cars. The long, wide strand of beach is located on Nantucket Sound. It is staffed with lifeguards and equipped with bathrooms and showers.
Sea Street Beach (20 Mins away)
Medium-sized beach. Stairs down. Soft but dirtier sand. Rock jetties. Calm water and tiny waves. Gorgeous view. Not too crowded. All ages. Large parking. Attendant on duty. No walk. Closes at 11 p.m. Sea Street Beach in Dennisport, not to be confused with the beach of the same name in East Dennis, is set down from the main road, making it feel like you’re on your own private island. Rock jetties line this good-sized beach, which features calm waters and a stunning view.
Chapin Memorial Beach (22 Mins away)
Four-wheel drive trail off road (Chapin/Crow). Quiet. Tidal pools. With not much of anything surrounding it, Chapin Memorial Beach is the perfect place for those trying to get away from the commotion of everyday life. Equipped with miles of sand for your beach pleasure, Chapin also offers ORV trails for those vehicles with permits. At low tide shallow tidal pools stretch out for what seems like forever – perfect for searching for those cute little sea creatures with your own cute little creatures.
Sandy Neck Beach (23 Mins away)
Thousands of years have allowed this barrier beach to develop into 4,700 acres of dunes, maritime forests, and marshes. It is a living museum, exhibiting dynamic landscapes rich with ecological activity and recreational opportunities. Each year hundreds of visitors are attracted to Sandy Neck to soak up the sunshine, swim, and beach comb as they witness the power of the ocean. While extremely satisfying, these activities represent a fraction of the possibilities for any visitor seeking to enjoy a quality outdoor experience.
