Nice for photo taking. This is a nice end to a stroll from the town centre! We loved the view and the surroundings. The grounds are clean and the area at the time of our visit was no too busy.

What can I say?! Famous Cape cod beach with sprawling dunes & today harbor seals everywhere! I'm sure they would've preferred sunshine too, but they looked as happy as we did! Nothing quite like this beach, huge fan, rain or shine.
