We came here after being turned away from Mayflower and Corporation. It was probably about 11am, and there were still spots open at Howes beach which was amazing! Walk to the beach was hard, up and down a big hill, but it was also very...More

Others have mentioned climbing the dune to get to the beach, so I won’t. Adjacent to corporation beach—just different parking lots. This parking lot is quite small, so get there by 1100. When tide goes out, it REALLY goes out, creating hundreds of yards of...More

This beach is an extension of Corporation Beach with a smaller parking lot and a difficult path to reach the beach. It is handy when Corporation parking lot is full (i.e. after 9 AM on sunny weekends.)

Great little beach- real old Cape Cod atmosphere. Very nice snack bar at the adjoining beach (Corporation Beach) in easy walking distance. This is the cold water side of the Cape (south side beaches are much wormer for swimming), Small parking lot.
