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.

White sandy beach with lots of boats moored in front of you. Stunning sunsets. Simple beach bar serves great fish and chips and tasty clam chowder.

Let me start out by saying I am a beach snob. I tend only to like the Cape beaches in Chatham, Ptown, and the Brewster flats. My expectations of Kalmus Beach were low. Wow was I pleasantly surprised! It was beautiful! The sand is soft and white, the vista is beautiful, and the shells are aplenty! There are a lot... More
