I did not want to have to pay $20.00 to park, it was too hot to be in the sun all day, I drove in around 4:00 pm and did not have to pay, the snack bar was still open.

Clean calm water. Bring water shoes if you or your kids are sensitive to rocky/Shelly beach sand. Nice snack bar. Good variety of food. No alcohol served. Has a bathroom and outdoor shower.

First timer, it was amazing, loved the white sand and clear water. It was a quiet beach, even with the people. More like a revered beach. Loved the scenery and atmosphere.

The beach was clean, and because it was windy and overcast, it was empty. Lots of seaweed but no surprise. Large beach, great for shells.

Nice low key beach in Hyannis Harbor. We were there during the week and after 4 pm (didn't have to pay to park!) so the beach was not very crowded and low key. There is a nice snack shop and bathrooms but they do close...More

It's not a huge parking lot. I would say early in the day too ensure a spot! We were at a local hotel so we walked there.

No. Please keep in mind that the beach is fairly small and is set among private houses and beachfront and rented cottages. Although it is a great place to collect shells and see the sunrise and sunset I have to rate it... More
