Dog friendly and it wasn't too crowded. We went to the beach often on our vacation. It was very nice and pretty clean.

Most beautiful east coast beach I've ever been to. Beautiful blue water, light sand, grassy dunes. Natural beauty at its best!! Not overly crowded. Perfect for spending the day relaxing on an amazing beach. Only downside was that the water was very cold.

It was cool windy day and really foggy but the beach was beautiful. The kids played in the water a little but it was really cold. Found a few shells and talked to a fisherman. Had a great time.

What a beautiful beach. Nice and quiet but school isn't out here until next week. We saw 15-20 seals popping up, swimming along the shore, giving us all a show. Some would turn their heads and look right at the people on the beach. Groups...More

If you close your eyes and imagine the ocean, this is the beach of your imagination. It is remote, raw, wild, powerful and unspoiled. Bear that in mind when you visit. This is not a swimming beach. The undertow here will undo the most proficient...More

Beautiful views of the ocean, clean beach and ample parking. Large beach with plenty to see and do, there's even a life guard station that offers tours daily.

Clean beach, spacious and we even spotted seals. I hate waves and love the calm water. Bathrooms are pretty sketchy, but I did spot a changing area and rinse off shower.

Very long tedious walk to get an average beach area always seems to be windy here. Restrooms , changing areas are available

Is the handicap accessible blue mat put out during this time in the spring? If so can someone tell me where it is located and how I can get there/where to drive in the parking lots or roads. We have never been before Thank you!

I think it is a bit early for the blue mat. It would probably be better to wait until May 15 or so. There are two places I think the mat may be placed, one is behind the toilets and changing building where there is a... More

You do need a saltwater license. Rangers are not always helpful, especially the seasonal ones. You will pass Blackbeard's Bait and Tackle in Eastham on your way to PTown. Stop in and ask Paul what they 're catching and what... More
