"Happy Chappy" as it is know to locals is a family friendly beach. Low tide creates wonderful opportunities to explore tidal pools and is great for wading. This beach is very easy to access, but parking does require a sticker.

We've been going to the Cape for the past 40 years and have always enjoyed Chapoquoit Beach!

Five minute drive from home, not too rocky, great for hunting shells, lounging, and watching kite surfers.

As we visited early April, it was not for a swim, but it seems to be a good spot for kiteboarding and I had a great time looking at them. Impressive!

Well worth the two mile bike ride for a beach day down to this little gem. You can also park in the lot after 3:30pm. Sunset here is amazing and I recommend getting there at least an hour (or more) before sunset to get a space. Yoga on Wednesday starting at 6:30pm was a highlight for me (taught by Michele Netto.) The other beach yoga class I went to on Monument Beach Sunday morning was great too (teacher: Elaine Cody.) There was also yoga on Old Silver (closest beach to house) Thursday evening but I don't know who teaches it, hopefully Google can tell you. Enjoy!

Chapoquoit Beach was gorgeous this year. Really close to the house. Pretty sandy, not too rocky, calm, lots of soft sand bars. Great for kids who like to swim, boogie board, skim board, sand castle, or read. Definitely worth the walk past the private areas to get away from the crowding around the parking lot. Need to get beach sticker from the beach house on surf drive. Pricey but worth it and gets you onto all the Falmouth beaches.

We have enjoyed this family beach for many years. Clean clear water and soft beach sand on Buzzards bay. Wonderful small waves just right for young children. very relaxing need to get there early for vehicle parking (Permit needed)
