Beach Information

Beach Passes are not included with your rental. Below is the information on how to obtain beach passes for each of the Cape towns.

With 559.6 miles of pristine coastline, Cape Cod offers 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.

There are 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. A walk along Coast Guard Beach in Eastham – which regularly ranks on Dr. Beach’s annual list of the “Top 10 Beaches in America” – is spectacular, especially at sunset. Old Silver Beach in North Falmouth, Nauset Beach in Orleans, Herring Cove Beach in Provincetown and Mayflower Beach in Dennis are also among the more popular beaches for visitors. Find out more about bringing pets to the Cape Cod National Seashore in the summer.
