Head of the Meadow Beach is a wonderful beach! A big plus is that it is easily accessed, with a sizable free parking lot just a 5 minute walk from the shore. Seals bask on sandbars at low tide, or bob offshore at high tide....More
We always wander along here when we are in the Cape . Much less busy than Race point beach . If you park at far left of the car park and walk over the dune path and turn left you should see seals . It’s...More
I’ve been coming to this beach since I was a little kid and it’s still my favorite beach on the cape. The gray seal population has exploded over the years which makes for fascinating viewing. Of course you’ll hear about shark sittings but don’t be...More

We did not see any stinky seaweed. And sharks... well, they’re in the ocean, so yes, they are present. BUT- HOM has a large inlet that fills up as the tide comes in and gets quite deep, so that would be the option for those afraid to go in the open water.
No. The elevation difference is very little from the parking lot to the beach area. There's a long mat starting at the parking lot to walk along until your on the beach. The water receades a little bit during low tide so... More
No. The elevation difference is very little from the parking lot to the beach area. There's a long mat starting at the parking lot to walk along until your on the beach. The water receades a little bit during low tide so more walking is required if you desire sitting close to the waves.
