First Encounter, just a few miles from this rental [Vacation Rental ID 29024], is a great beach to enjoy in early autumn. At low tide, you can walk way out. The tidal flat is sandy and comfortable to walk shoeless. You might find a moon snail with your toes! It is quiet and beautiful and not busy. Others in our group prefer the wilder ocean beaches: Coast Guard, Nauset, Ballston in Truro; there are many choices!
