Not the best beach! They did have very pretty dunes and grass however, the water was freezing cold and my boys couldn't stand to be in it longer than a few seconds, and no farther than ankle deep. Water was calm, sunset was beautiful, just...More

I love to run Sandy Neck beach all year. You can see many wildlife species and last winter saw two Snowy Owls. You can walk 7 miles without crossing a road.

The beach is terrible. Extremely rocky on beach and in water. Not good to swim in at all. Water is extremely cold. Very disappointed. Can’t swim until high tide. Don’t go!!!

I love the cleanness of this beach. It is definitely the most clean beach in the area. It’s not usually crowded but downside is that it doesn’t have that much of sand beach (despite the name). Only patches of sand and more rocks.

The dunes, and landscape of this beach is just beautiful to is! The water is cold, but clear and beautiful! Fine for wading and walking the beach. (With sandals or water shoes since there are rocks) We saw a seal too, which was cool, but...More

This area is beautiful, but you have to pay per car load as you do with most of the beaches on the Cape. Very pricey for tourists on a weeks vacation. BUT if you watch for programs, they have turtle releases, bird walks and more...More
