Mayflower Beach is our favorite beach on Cape Cod Bay. It is a long and wide beach, and is especially beautiful when the tide is out.

Visited Mayflower Beach in October. Easy and free parking. It was low tide and I was able to walk out from the shoreline over several football fields worth of sand before reaching the water's edge. Came across some absolutely gigantic and gorgeous white clam shells....More

We are really happy we stopped by the beach. It was crowded (Labor Day weekend), but we had no trouble finding a spot to park. We didn't visit the snack bar, but the restrooms were small.

You can walk for miles on this gorgeous beach. It's a flat shallow beach and walking along on the edge of the sea in the sunshine was just lovely. Great for families, digging sandcastles and just taking in the calmness of the place.

as tide goes in and out - lots of pools for young kids to play in. Came after Labor Day so snack bar was closed but parking was free.

Ocean Vista is right on Mayflower Beach, technically right between Chapin and Mayflower. Repeaters reserve early and then it seems that there's space available closer in again.

If you want to park your car and go once then you can simply pay at the entrance. It's $20 weekdays and $25 weekends and the lot opens at 8am. I really can't think of anyplace free that you could park the car since the beach... More
