Nauset Beach reviews
Sunny day beach walk with the kids. Parking lot was fairly empty and free in the off months. Hunted for shark teeth (found one) and shells. Plenty of access to the beach and access points are flat...

Lovely beach area, but quite a walk down to the beach if you are disabled. Open and wide, you can see for miles. Plenty of parking.

Probably one of the nicest beaches on the cape. Beautiful soft sand. Waves for the kids to play in. Lots of pretty rocks to collect but also have to be careful if the tide is rough they can smash into your ankles. There are usually 2or 3 food trucks. Also be prepared to possibly have to get out of the water due to shark sightings. Great beach to walk at sunrise!
Really pretty and clean beach. Perfect for relaxing in the sand. Pretty views even on a cloudy morning when watching the sunrise. This beach is a higher risk for sharks, but if you really want to get in you could stay in the shallow end. The water is a little cold, but there are big waves which are fun. One of my favorite beaches, and I will definitely be coming back!
Good beach.. parking near 25-35$ required, not a good bathhouse (was closed) and some shower is there to remove sands.. a lot of seals to watch.. watch out YouTube /BHARTIFAMILY vlogs to know more about this place..
This place is beautiful. In my travels I have seen many beautiful beaches and Nauset Beach is in my top 5 in the east coast. We even had seals swimming around. My 1st time at Cape Cod but not the last.
An amazing experience last year at the height of the pandemic....the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and professional. The ferry from parking to the beach was super sweet. Looking foward to returning next month.
