Go Early, Go Often

If hitting the beach is on your Cape Cod vacation itinerary, head to Mayflower Beach in Dennis MA. But go early, the sand fills up quickly – often before 9:30 a.m. on weekdays and by 8:30 a.m. on weekends.


Beat the Crowds and the Traffic

So what’s the attraction of getting to the beach so early?

Aside from beating the crowds and finding a spot on the beach, gate attendant Kelsey McEntee says, “… it’s the beautiful low tide that attracts so many so fast, draining out about a half-mile from shore to create alluring sand flats and tidal pools.”

Other Popular Cape Cod Beaches in Dennis, MA

Spyro Mitrokostas, executive director of the Dennis Chamber of Commerce, said Chapin and Corporation — the other two north-side beaches — fill up their lots by midmorning, while the south-side beaches — West Dennis to Sea Street Beach — rarely fill up during the day.

“Yarmouth and Brewster have fewer and less attractive beaches,” Mitrokostas said. “Folks who are visiting or staying in Brewster and Yarmouth migrate to Dennis beaches, Mayflower being the more popular of the three.”

He also added that both Mayflower and Corporation beaches have additional services with food and facilities, making them destinations for families with kids who are looking to camp out for the day.
