Sunrise yoga at Crosby Landing Beach was both tranquil and exhilarating.

Crosby Beach is just a few mies away-across from Nickerson State Park
After 3 pm anyone can use the parking lot-which leaves only a short walk to the
water and beach

Crosby is a wide, long, sandy beach mostly backed by marsh. This is one of the most scenic of the Brewster's bay beaches. Crosby can get buggy when it is warm without wind (early summer green head flies can be a problem at times!) But, most of the time this beach is very pleasant. Because the beach is fairly large, it's always possibly to find an uncrowded stretch of beach. One of the easiest ways to get away from the crowd is to walk east from the parking long behind the dunes - most of the walking is easy and there are several branching trails to take you directly onto the beach. You don't have to walk terribly far!

Parking can be a problem - if you drive to Crosby and expect to get a parking spot at 11am on a warm sunny July or August weekend, forget it. The lots will be full and Brewster's parking enforcement is aggressive. One option is to park at Nickerson park across 6A and bike down. Parking at non-peak times is rarely a problem.

We enjoyed Crosby landing the most, even though it was a bit of a longer walk (20 min-not bad at all) [Vacation Rental ID 26543]. We felt is was less crowded than others and had cleaner sand. But you can't go wrong with any of the Brewster beaches!! Nothing beats the way the tide goes out.

Long, wide sandy beach with a natural background - plenty of space to find some solitude or just enjoy some swimming. Only downside to the Brewster Bay beaches is the lack of water at low tide... But, this is always the best time to explore the tide pools.

Beautiful, flat, miles of walking when the tide is out. Safe for little ones to play. Always warm water in the spring.

Crosby is great at low tide or high tide. It's a long expanse of beach, the longest of Brewster's 8 bayside beaches. There is a long walking path and gorgeous vistas that on a clear day extend to Provincetown's monument. When the tide is out, you can walk miles across "the flats" for families and artists wanting a dramatic view. When the tide is in, the water is warmer by far than the Atlantic Ocean in mid-summer, and it is shallow enough in spots for young children to play and swim. If you like paddle-boarding, this is the place for you!
In addition, there is Nauset Beach for a dramatic view of the Atlantic Ocean and enough surf to suit the water sports crowd.
Of course there is also Sheep Pond and Long Pond, an easy walk from the house, with some of the clearest waters to be found on the Cape and the charming community beaches that are part of the neighborhood.

Not too crowdy, perfect for young kids (small wave, shallow and hot water). Not muddy! However people have parties on the beach doing fires so we end up playing in wood ashes...

Miles of shallow mudflats at low tide made for wonderful crab-hunting adventures! And no worries about the kids.

Crosby Landing was recommended to us when we bought our weekly beach sticker. It has a larger parking lot, the dunes are nice and, since we are afternoon beach people without kids, we always got a space and it was really perfect!
