Cape Cod Beaches

With 559.6 miles of pristine coastline, Cape Cod beaches are among some of the finest beaches in the world, especially those along the Cape Cod National Seashore, a 40-mile stretch of unspoiled sandy beach in Outer Cape Cod. Cape Cod’s constantly changing coastline has created new reasons to come and see our beautiful coasts.

Find Cape Cod beaches to suit every taste, from the flats on Cape Cod Bay where children can enjoy the warm water tidal pools at low tide, to windsurfing locations at Hardings Beach in Chatham and Kalmus Beach in Hyannis, to barrier beaches with off-roading trails like Sandy Neck Beach in Barnstable, to Atlantic Ocean-facing beaches like Nauset Beach in Orleans. The spectacular beaches of the Cape Cod National Seashore include Marconi Beach in Wellfleet, Herring Cove Beach in Provincetown and Coast Guard Beach in Eastham, which regularly ranks on Dr. Beach's annual list of the "Top 10 Beaches in America." Cape Cod tests all public beach waters, and monitoring results from previous seasons indicate exceptional water quality here.

Here is a list of just some of the beautiful public beaches on Cape Cod.

Remember, we share our Cape Cod beaches with native wildlife, including sharks and seals. Here are shark safety tips for all beachgoers.
