Checked out this spot while visiting Hyannis in Winter. Lovely sand, nice view. It’s small but pretty. Love to go back in summer. Nice to see a snack bar and restrooms. Lots of shells to collect.

I went to this beach in the fall, and it is absolutely breathtaking. I don't know if it is open to the public in the summer months, but it is fantastic to walk on nonetheless.

Spent our 30th Anniversary on this beach during a warm spell in October. What a treat! Got some sea shells. Very relaxing, watched the ships going to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.

We enjoyed a beautiful October morning walking on the beach. The shells were plentiful and the beach was not crowded.

Came here after a long stressful day. The endless beach and the waves was just what I needed. Found so many scallop shells I could not believe it!

Very nice and clean beach. You can buy lunch from the snack bar. The restrooms close at 5.00 pm. The only downside is, you can not play ball everywhere. If you do something that it is not supposed , the guards come to tell you....More
