It was a not bad beach a few years ago, but now it is overcrowded and dirty, expensive - they charge $20 this is way to expensive for such beach. Beware there are a lot of small bugs, an a lot of seaweed.

There are two sections to Old Silver Beach. One side is for Falmouth residents and the other is open to the public, with a charge for parking. Beautiful sand and clear water are the main attractions.
