Where: Corporation Road, Dennis View Map
Water Type: Salt water
Good for: Swimming, Walking, Skimboarding
The calm, bayside waters of Corporation Beach are warm and perfect for children and families. When the tide goes out, plenty of tide pools are left behind for exploring. Dennis Public Market runs a concession stand here. There is a decent amount of parking at this beach. Weekly and daily parking permits are available from the town of Dennis.

While we love Mayflower, we find the kids and grandparents love Corporation best. You don’t need to walk as far to find a good spot (key for grandparents who don’t do well walking in the deep sand), clean bathrooms, snack shack and swings, and lots more ocean life for the kids to find because of the sea grass and jetties. We’ve had days at Mayflower where they don’t even find any hermit crabs, but at Corporation they’ve found those, sand crabs, squid, horseshoe crabs, starfish, and more. They tend to have a much busier and fun day there. It’s also much less windy on that side than say, Smugglers, which, when windy, is just an awful experience.

Great beach for families! The shallow waters durning low-tide are a lot fun for kids.

This beach has been a family favorite for many years because of the calm water and view. Arrive early to get parking. The water is cool so it’s best on a very warm or hot day.

Great for kids, the low and high tides are a lot of fun for the kids. Snack bar and bathrooms located pretty much right on the beach.

Get there early. Or late. Or be prepared to wait in line for a parking spot. It’s a gentle, gradually sloping beach with mild “surf” and excellent facilities - snack bar, rest rooms, shower towers.
We love the view and calm water at this beach. Children enjoy the tide pools at low tide, and snacks are available.

Plenty of space for everyone. Great for small kids with lots of space for building sand castles.
Michael L.Melrose, MA2 reviewsMember since: Oct 2021
Perfect for younger kids and parents, especially around low tide. A little cold, to be sure, but little-to-no surf, a great view, and plenty of sandcastle-building materials. Clean public bathrooms with running water and a snack shop, too.

A horseshoe shape beach in Dennis. the beach shelves gently into the sea and the waves are not too high. The car park is on a cliff so you get a great view of the whole beach. The tide goes out a long way so great for beach walks.

Great beach with lots of sand space, tide pools at low tide, clean bathroom facilities, and a delicious snack shack.

Very kid friendly, clean and easy
Amy K.Leominster, MA2 reviewsMember since: Apr 2015
Perfect for young kids. Not too cold, and almost zero waves, so we weren't worried about undertow. Other beaches we visited had jellyfish, coarse sand, or were covered in shells, which made walking difficult. No such issues here. Although $25 for parking at 4:30pm seemed a little steep, seeing as other beaches weren't charging after 4pm.

Beautiful sand, incredible cleanliness, easy access to bathhouses but parking can be an issue unless you get there early.
Susan B.San Antonio, TX2 reviewsMember since: Sep 2019
Clear waters with no surf; great when tide is out for games and sand sculpting etc.

Anne M.3 reviewsMember since: Mar 2018
When I was a child, I spent many days on Mayflower Beach which is great. While staying at Dan and Linda's cottage [Vacation Rental ID 25074], I spent most of my vacation at Corporation Beach. It is beautiful and a wonderful spot for children and families. The DPM snack bar was outstanding!! Also, check out the scenic views at Chapin Beach; they will take your breath away!
Anne C.Westwood, MA2 reviewsMember since: Sep 2018
It was the most convenient beach and the kids loved playing in the tidal pools and exploring among the rocks. Also, there was the convenience of rest rooms and the DPM food stand.
Elise M.Westfield, MA3 reviewsMember since: Jul 2017
Wonderful tide pools for the kids. Breakfast and lunch restaurant (made to order) on sight. Cleanest bathrooms you will ever find at the beach!
Pat U.Gales Ferry, CT3 reviewsMember since: Jan 2018

Katie B.Norwood, MA2 reviewsMember since: Jul 2017
Great for kids - close walk to beach from parking lot, nice swing set overlooking the beach, convenient picnic area with tables and handy food beach bar, clean beach with very few rocks.
Connie M.Clearwater, FL3 reviewsMember since: Apr 2013
We like corporation because we like the dpm grill for sunset dinner at the picnic tables. But we also like Mayflower and Scargo lake to fish for bass.All are close.
Andrea H.Bremen, GA2 reviewsMember since: Mar 2017
This beach has lots of fluffy sand, good parking and is large enough to have a lot of people and not be crowded.
Beth B.2 reviewsMember since: Jun 2016
Calm water was perfect for children to swim with their boogie boards. They also enjoyed finding hermit crabs at low tide. Clean restrooms, showers and a snack bar.
Megan W.Westborough, MA6 reviewsMember since: Aug 2007
Beautiful clear, cold water. We found tons of teeny hermit crabs (at least 30), which was a thrill for our kids. Water is calm and shallow, very safe for young swimmers. Very busy but worth it!
Greta B.Mercersburg, PA2 reviewsMember since: Nov 2015
The beach is perfect for small children, shallow, where the tide creates small pools for the kids to play in. Clean toilets, clean beach, clean water.
Karen F.Shrewsbury, MA3 reviewsMember since: Jul 2007
Love this beach, clear water, great food at the beach shack (Seaside Grille) plenty of parking. I love Mayflower so much too but if you want to find parking, you better not sleep in!
Shelly D.Bristol, VT3 reviewsMember since: Mar 2008
Plenty of space, place to eat, shower, play.
Katie R.2 reviewsMember since: Mar 2016
Perfect family friendly beach. Plenty of parking but get there early!
Rebecca B.Holliston, MA5 reviewsMember since: Jul 2011
Beach, bathroom, food, close parking, and warm (er) bay waters. Best for little kids
Heather T.Canada2 reviewsMember since: Feb 2008
We love the long walk at low tide. Our younger son loves skimboarding on this beach. The shallow, warm water has been an ideal beach as our children have grown.
Rita R.West Granby, CT2 reviewsMember since: Dec 2014
A wonderful family beach. Kids love it, especially at low tide. The new concession stand, which also offers dinner, is great.

Family friendly and great fireworks on July 4th!
Erin M.Valencia, CA2 reviewsMember since: Mar 2014
Grew up there...can't beat the beauty. Fabulous snack shack too!
Jessica P.Ellington, CT2 reviewsMember since: Mar 2008
This was by far the kids favorite spot. It's a small enough beach that we did not have to be on top of them every minute, but large enough that they were always having fun and keeping busy; collecting tiny hermit crabs, looking for smaller crabs under the rocks, wading out at low tide, watching a couple of seals or trying to body board. It was a perfect fit!
