Falmouth was not my final destination. I was passing through headed to Martha Vineyard but the area was much more than I expected. Quiet, quaint And pleasant.

Pack some snacks and beverages to enjoy on the beach. Even after sunset, stay awhile to enjoy the serenity following a beautiful sunset. Easy parking for sunset and great beach to walk on.
