on Cape Cod

With over 500 miles of coastline, Cape Cod is filled with an incredibly variety of beaches.

Buzzards Bay

While there are only a handful of public beaches on the Cape side of Buzzards Bay, they are spectacular. Typically warmer water and fine sand. Buzzard’s Bay beaches offer an extraordinary sunset each night that you don’t want to miss.

Cape Cod Bay

Cape Cod Bay offers some of the most impressive tidal beaches you can find in the US, as low tide can cause the shore to stretch out hundreds of yards. The currents pull water in from the north so the waters tend to be a bit cooler.

  • Scusset Beach
  • Sandy Neck Beach
  • Mayflower Beach
  • Skaket Beach
