Love this beach. Well worth the cost of the two-week sticker.

Tough call, because every beach in Truro is special, but when you need to beat the heat, there's nothing like floating around in Corn Hills warm and mellow, crystal clear waters. Especially when the tide is out.

Pretty bay beach with good sand and a large parking lot and great walkways to get through the dunes to the beach. Great for kids young and old.

Considerably safer swimming experience than the nearby ocean beaches of Longnook and Ballston which we still love to walk at.

Quiet, beautiful dunes, calm waters, sand bars at low tide, good shelling, amazing sunsets. Port a potties. Good parking and wheelchair accessible. No lifeguards.

We loved Ballston Beach on the ocean side, but Corn Hill Beach has handicapped accessibility which made it easier to get to and from the parking lot. We loved being able to go to all the beaches in the off season and not worry about parking permits. There were no crowds-- just what we needed in a getaway!

Always pleasant there. Clams and kids doesn’t get any betterto watch the sun set too. Many years on the cape and still my favorite part of the cape and you can pay a daily rate if not staying in Truro

My favorite beach is the beach which borders the cottage below the high dunes. it is a long and wide beach which seems to be used by only those staying in the collection of 6 or 8 cottages. For AM or PM walking you can walk towards Provincetown or in the opposite direction towards Wellfleet. Both directions hold lovely views and rocks and shells for collecting. When perching yourself on the bay beach, it is fun to use binoculars to watch the passing boats and birds and be lulled to rest by the small waves of the bay. Heaven.

This beach was easily accessible for those with mobility issues. The water was warmer than the ocean side. We brought our dog there (before 9 AM or after 6 PM). It is also great for kids. Be aware that if you only visit during the limited hours that allow dogs, you do not need the beach parking pass.
