An absolutely stunning beautiful place. This time of year, you can walk down the beach toward the spot and see no humans, only wild life. Highly recommend

We spend our summer in Eastham, and most of our beach days are spent here. This is such a beautiful beach. Great for surfing, boogyboarding and Long Beach walks. My favorite beach on the Cape.

Out of season just no-one to share the beach with. Wonderful. The ocean seams vast from here, the seals just dots. Come at day break - it’s magic.

Cape Cod Beach at its finest - well-patrolled (those pesky man-eating sharks) and absolutely gorgeous beach. Bring your camera or camera phone. Endless sky, endless water, endless goodness and endless peace. Light flows there. Be in it. Even in the dark there is strong light...More

One of several Cape Cod beaches my wife and I continue to visit and enjoy. It's been a few years since our last visit. It's sad how the dunes are vanishing. Thanks for the memories.

Great waves, excellent walking beach but the beach is always crowded. If you have trouble with stairs, not the beach to visit.

This was our first trip to Cape Cod and the first beach we visited. The beach is pet friendly, so bring your canines :) It was September, so the beach was pretty empty. It’s part of the National Seashore so rules are greatly enforced. No...More

Very busy the day we visited. The beach, itself, is huge and has a large parking area adjacent to the dunes. Access was good, with stairs crossing over the dunes. Rest rooms and gift shop on site. Came after Labor Day so any fee was...More

Clean water and watching the seals is amazing. One of the shortest walks to the beach from a parking lot and they have a shuttle service for you.
