Wonderful beach during the off season months - May, early June, September, October - quiet, minimal beach goers, open vistas, well behaved dogs/walkers - great at sunset Summer is another story. Parking is scarce and the beach is packed.

The best time to go to any of the Cape beaches is after tourist season. A great place to see the amazing sunsets the Cape has to offer.

This is by far a great great beach. Low tide is perfect for families. Water temp can vary but at times surprisingly warm. Only downer is the extensive patrols by police and security in regard to prevent alcohol on the beach. The positive aspects of...More

The Cape in the off-season is the best! Wide open beach parking lots and room to walk and play on the sand WITH the dog! Mayflower has lovely soft sand and incredible sunsets.

Great Bayside beach convenient to visitors in the Dennis/ Brewster area. Perfect spot to watch July 4th fireworks! No waves so the crowd is family oriented with lots of seniors as well.

Yes, the shallow water at or around low tide (app=tidesnearus) is perfect for skim boards and your kids will not be alone in using them.
