Old Silver faces west, so the sunsets are amazing. The beach is also the best combination of sand/warm water on the Cape. The south facing beaches tend to be more rocky, while Old Silver is smooth sand, and the waters of Buzzards Bay are very...More

Just a great beach, not a long drive after you go over the bridge. Great for families or couples, plenty of food places nearby.

Old Silver beach is actually two beaches. The right hand side for Falmouth residents with stickers the left side public with a $20.00 parking fee. Nice family oriented beach, small waves and good sand, life guard until 5:00 pm. Free access after 4:00 pm.

The view is nothing to write home about. The public part of the beach is very small and was loaded with families with small children. The restroom facilities were clean. There are better beaches on Cape Cod.

I grew up coming to Old Silver beach, and now that I'm an adult still love coming here! The water is calm and clean (usually), and parking is reasonable. However, once the lot is full, goold luck finding parking nearby! Highly recommend coming early.

OSB is one of my favorite beaches when I visit the Cape. As long as the weather is nice, then the day should be fun. There's plenty of room on the beach and the rocks on the left side of the beach are very fun...More
