Vacationing on Cape Cod promises miles of sandy beaches, relaxing days spent by the ocean, and tons of sunshine. Our boutique Falmouth hotel is a great home base for those looking to enjoy some downtime on Cape beaches, along with the restaurants, galleries, and shops in historic Falmouth. Here are our recommendations for the best beaches in Falmouth so you can maximize these last few weeks of summer.
Located right in the heart of Falmouth, this beach faces Nantucket Sound and is perfect for watching the harbor traffic while you relax. With a long crescent of sand and its easy access, this beach can be crowded, so don't head here if you're looking for a quiet day on the sand. Instead, bring your Frisbee and prepare to get in on the fun. The beach has lifeguards and restrooms.
Hit the beach with kids in tow at this family-friendly spot. With warm water from Buzzards Bay, soft sand, and gentle waves, this is the perfect beach for some time in the sun. Amenities like lifeguards, restrooms, and a snack bar mean you can spend the day here. This is one of the more popular beaches in Falmouth, so arrive early if you want a prime spot for the day.
Head out to Woods Hole to find this gem of a beach, that despite the name, is nice and sandy. With a great view of Buzzards Bay looking north, Stony Beach feels like a world apart. A parking fee applies, but the lot is very close to the beach. As with all popular Cape Cod beaches, come early to ensure a good spot.
