Best Beaches on Cape Cod

Best Beaches on Cape Cod

Cahoon Hollow Beach 


The beach where the locals go! Cahoon Hollow boasts stunning cliffside views of the Cape Cod National Seashore, accentuated with roaring waves crashing onto the well manicured beach. You’ll be able to watch droves of surfers navigate their way back towards the sand, and maybe even spot a seal or two! Though the water may be cooler than bayside beaches, it makes up for it with its Cape Cod charm. Enjoy a drink at the tremendously popular Wellfleet Beachcomber or learn to boogie board and surf on the waves. Note: There are two separate parking lots but arrive early on weekends to secure your spot!

Seagull Beach


Seagull Beach is a MUST-VISIT for your family when planning your trip to Cape Cod. The beach offers an authentic Cape Cod landscape with white sand and blue water. Harboring Nantucket Sound, kids can swim in the warm water, and play on the beach. Seagull beach is a convenient 5 minute drive from downtown Yarmouth MA, offering a seemingly endless stretch of restaurants, mini golf, ice cream stores, and even an inflatable water park! Less than 10 minutes from the Bayside Resort Hotel, Seagull Beach is the perfect destination to bring your family without the hassle of navigating traffic and other beach goers!

Mayflower Beach

Dennis MA

Perhaps the most scenic beach on Cape Cod, Mayflower Beach offers an endless landscape of white sand, tidepools, and coastline. Voted as one of the best in the United States by Parents Magazine Mayflower is the perfect place to bring your family for some fun in the sun! TIP: Go at low tide– when the ocean recedes it leaves behind a spacious, smooth, and scenic beach that will separate you from other beach goers. Spread out and stake your claim on one of Cape Cod’s best destinations! But go early, though the beach is expansive, parking is limited on weekends and holidays. Luckily, the Bayside Resort Hotel is only 9 miles away and will ensure you’ll have time to sleep in and enjoy the full breakfast buffet!
