Limit search to Orleans.
Skaket Beach
#1 of 7 Nature & Parks in Orleans
Off season this location offers the opportunity to stroll along the beach and watch beautiful sunsets Even if it's cold and windy you can park close enough to watch the sune set from inside your vehicle.
Great for sunsets and free after 4:30 or $ 20 to park.
Nauset Beach
#2 of 7 Nature & Parks in Orleans
Pricy to park ($20) but free in the evenings and it has great amenities-- clean bathrooms and changing area, as well as a nice beach side shack for take out lunch, snacks, smoothies and ice cream.
Walking down the stairs to the beach and viewing the beauty of this place and giving oneself over to the power of nature is a joy!
