Great beach for everyone. Plenty of sand and surf to go around with two separate sides, one looking towards Hyannis Yacht Club moorings, one with vast ocean views (which are great for fireworks on the 4th of July). Snack bar with ample choices. Restrooms and changing areas. Windsurfing is good. Lots of side alcoves nestled in the sea grass as... More

This is such a nice beach but it gets a bit crowded. Not sure of the parking fees since I have a residence sticker but it's a big beach with a lot of parking but if you don't get there early you may not get in

This is a beautiful, long beach! Yes, we went in December...just wanted to get away for the day. Huge parking area and no fees in December. We brought along our dog for a walk. This may not be allowed in the summer. I don't know. This beach is tucked away behind some small dunes. There are numerous pathways to walk... More

We love Kalmus beach because of the amazing snack shack and the wide open spaces that encompass both the bay side and the ocean side!

Beautiful and quiet beach on the Cape. One of many local beaches. If you are staying for the week it is well worth the trip to city hall to get a week long pass!

I love Kalmus as there is always a lot of activity. Windsurfers, Kitesurfers, Ferry Boats, and pleasure boats coming and going out of Hyannis Harbor, all make for an active beach adventure. You can always just relax and take in the hot sun and cool breezes and ignore everything, also. Snack bar is also good.

This is one of our traditional vacation spots as the beach is clean, the parking is good, (even though a bit expensive), and the facilities are clean and well-maintained.

Ther is many beaches in the area. Parking are expensive in summer time. Usually after Labor day when there is no-more lifegard on duty, the parking are free. The beaches by them self are nice and clean.
