This is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! Great to walk on, rain or shine, it stretches for miles (11, I think.)

Sandy Neck Beach is a great Cape Cod beach for summer fun on either end of this long beach. There are beach lovers on one end who have traveled in and parked in their ample parking areas or the RV's that have set up camp on the opposite end of the beach for a few days of summer fun on... More

Took our dogs for a chilly Sunday walk. Plenty of parking and other dogs to enjoy. Clean and well kept. Will need to visit in the spring or summer.

a special pass is reauired to park near the beach obtainable from the town hall this is not helpful to the day visitor and we felt unwelcome. this area wants the money from tourists but wants the beaches to be exclusively local.

Beach itself is lovely. We hear that it's VERY busy on summer days, but we went in mid-September and the weather was perfect!
