Pay to park - so plan on staying awhile to make it worth the parking fee.

The beach is great....beautiful, but you have to pay to get to it. So it will cost you if you just want to take a stroll along the beach.

Craigville Beach is quintessential Cape Cod! The beach is meticulous, quiet and family oriented, warm water (reaching 74 degrees in July & August) and offers great views of boaters, jet skiers and distant views of the ferry's. If planning on visiting on a weekend, you will need to be there by 10:30 to be assured a parking spot. Fear not,... More

Happened to be on Cape Cod during a full moon lunar eclipse and decided to view it from Criagville Beach. Glad we did. It was pretty cool (and we weren't the only ones with that thought). Parking lot was busy - and everyone there had a good time!

The beach was great! Quiet and clean. The water was great. The lifeguards made sure that everyone stayed safe. Best thing was the intercom announcing "Good Afternoon Craigville Beach!" I loved the atmosphere for the beach. Our teens really enjoyed being there.

Craigville Beach offers more parking lot then beach. This is not the iconic Cape Cod beach with sand dunes and gentle surf that you see on all the travel brochures. Beach is also crowded. With all of that being said, if you have very small children you will appreciate the short distance from car to beach, warmer water, no surf,... More

We travelled with 1-year old baby and it was important for us to have a calm and warm water. That's what we found at Craigville beach. Besides,it was clean with all the facilities located very close (including 2 cafés across the road with pretty good food). There were plenty of shelves in the sand but they were not sharp and...

Clean beach, easy to park (for a fee,) bathroom facilities, lifeguards (and all the rules that come along with lifeguards at the beach.) Nice spot for a walk or swim. Lots of folks of all different ages enjoying the calm, somewhat protected waters (no waves to speak of when we visited.) The beach is set in a larger crescent, with... More

Best thing about this beach is its water temperature which must be in 70s, feels warm and nice minus the seaweed and murkiness. It is easy to get to and close to all the other attractions Hyannis has to offer. Parking is $20. No kite flying or beach ball, otherwise one of the life guards will approach and give you... More

A really nice clean beach with ample parking and restrooms nearby. There are a couple of cafes just a short walk away that server all manner of food and drink. The beach is sheltered and the water warmer than come of the Atlantic facing beaches.

Love that beach..... Sometimes it's really full wich is a good sign. The water is nice and warmer than in some other beaches. I'd recommend wearing beach beach shoes bc there's a lot of broken shells ! Beautiful! !!
