This is a small Beach but doesn't get very crowded. It is great for kids because it does not have crazy waves. It is a bit Rocky so bring water shoes but it's also great for looking for rocks and shells.

It's a small beach. Sheltered so no wave action, it's good for small children. It has great sunset action. A good place to hide out on a wild windy day with a book. you can see where the railroad came through years ago. A little...More

We stayed in a rental just a few blocks away from the beach. Went down around sunset while the tide was low, but the bugs were terrible.

I like this beach, not so crowded. The water is less rough then the ocean side and it's flat to get to. You don't have to walk over a dune to get there. Yes, there's parking.

A really nice town beach. It is free off season but you need a Truro permit in season. A really fun long beach with nice homes and many sets of staircases up to the top. This is a bay beach so it is usually calm.

Pretty much all of the town beaches in North Truro have steep dunes. They are a challenge for me. As far as the town beaches, Head of the Meadow does have a ramp access that makes it much easier to access the beach.
