Try not to forget to bring your camera or phone. Enjoy the wonderful sunsets over Cape Cod Bay. A few clouds mixed in, the better and more splendid.

Skaket is an ordinary beach in a Cape Cod with many more wonderful beaches. But it does seemlike it a good choice for young children, because it does not get the heavy surf you can have elsewhere on the Cape. It gets very, very buggy...More

We were hoping for a glorious sunser, but a large cloud arrived blocking the sun. This photo shows an amazing shot of the hidden sun.

Skaket is a great place for the little ones. When the tide goes out you can barely see the ocean and there are many tidal pools to play in. Kite flying is fun here also but there isn't a lot of runway for moving around....More

Arrived at low tide and experienced the beauty of an extraordinary beach. The oyster beds are sprinkled over the large area which extends to Rock Harbor beach, and miles of heavenly walking with charming families and sea life abound in this spot.
