Cape Cod Beaches


Cape Cod’s beaches are considered among the best in the world. They vary from quiet Cape Cod Bay side beaches with calm cool water, to the warm gentle waves of the beaches on Nantucket Sound, to the wild and roaring surf of the beaches laying on Cape Cods eastern shore. With 559.6 miles of unspoiled coastline, Cape Cod offers many beautiful sandy beaches for you to enjoy.

Breakwater Beach

Ellis Landing Beach

Some small tidal pools. Rocky. Long beach. Good amount of room at low tide. Not so much at high tide.

Linnell Landing Beach

This bayside beach provides a great place for beach combing and exploring tidal pools. At high tide there is still plenty of beach for to set up beach chairs and umbrellas.

Nickerson State Park

Beautiful fresh water ponds for swimming and kayaking. Boat rentals.

Paine's Creek Beach

Only .03 miles from the Inn. One of the most amazing things about Paine's Creek Beach is the dramatic change in its landscape/seascape from high tide to low. At high tide, waves lap against the seawall and jetties. As the tide recedes, colorful marsh grasses are exposed and "new" stretches of sparkling sand appear everywhere you look. At the end of the day, this is one of the best places on the Cape to watch the sun set!

Point of Rocks Beach

Located at the end of a dead end street, this beach has no parking. A great place to walk the flats at low tide!! You will see the most beautiful sunsets there!!

Robbins Hill Beach

Intriguing tidal pools and rocky at low tide. Good amount of beach at high tide - lots at low tide.

Saint's Landing

Saint's landing has a narrow, but beautiful white sandy shoreline.
