There is no shortage of lovely beaches but a lovely surprise for me was Flax pond in Nickerson State Park. The clear freshwater is fabulous to swim in and there are sailboats boats and paddle boards for rent. You can rent bikes in Orleans and cycle along the bike path to get there - a great day out.

Other than Sheep Pond, which is in walking distance to the house [Property ID 11894], Nickerson State Park offers another clean pond (Flax Pond) where you can rent Stand-Up Paddleboards and Sunfish Sailboats from Jack's Boat Rentals in Brewster.
