Cape Cod is known for it's outstanding beaches and ocean. The sand dunes are very high and you need to use a staircase, since the dunes are protected. The beach is never crowded and the ocean is quite cold. The hardy person will definitely enjoy...More

Stopped off at dusk to check out surfers and beach. Changing facilities seemed decent. Lifeguards present during day. $20 to park all day. Accessed via wooden staircase.

There is no place on the beach site itself to rent equipment. The main road that goes through Cape Cod, all the way up to Provincetown definitely has businesses for all that. I don't know any price information.
