We absolutely loved this beautiful sanctuary and beach. My seven year old and 16 year old enjoyed themselves. The trail was not too strenuous and the water was sparkling clear. We’ll definitely be returning !

A hidden gem. Yes, parking is incredibly limited but my God people, stop complaining. Life is compromises. There is nothing good in life that does not come without a cost. So what, you have to wait to park or park a few hundred feet down...More

This location has a fantastic view of Buzzards Bay. It is probably 280 degrees of glorious water views. When in Falmouth, it is not to be missed.
