Cape Cod is famous for its beaches. Whether it’s the Atlantic-facing beaches along the National Seashore, extensive sandy flats on Cape Cod Bay, the beaches large and small along Buzzards Bay on the west side of the Cape, or the south side beaches on Vineyard and Nantucket Sounds, there are plenty to choose from and everyone has their favorites.
Ballston Beach, Truro, and Cahoon Hollow Beach, Wellfleet, are the top two beaches according to Cape Cod Magazine. Both are part of the seemingly endless National Seashore famous for tall sandy cliffs, sand bars, and waves. Ballston Beach is more tranquil while Cahoon Hollow is a favorite among surfers and home to the famous and popular Beachcomber Bar and Restaurant
Cold Storage Beach, East Dennis, ranked #4, is on Cape Cod Bay and at low tide it seems like you can walk for miles on the sand flats. To the west, it borders Sesuit Harbor with a daily parade of fishing and pleasure boats.
Craigville Beach, Centerville, ranked #6, and Dowses Beach, Osterville, ranked #7, are the top beaches on the south shore of Cape Cod. Craigville Beach is frequently referred to as “world famous” in travel magazines and is popular with families with small children due to the calm shallow waters and nearby snack bars. Dowses Beach fronts on both Nantucket Sound and the Centerville River providing panoramic water views and there is a handicap-accessible pier for fishing.
