This is a smaller beach, but it wasn't crowded and we were able to park easily -- even arriving very late in the morning (11:30). I loved that the beach is right next to the parking lot as it can get tiring to schlep chairs, bags, etc. to some of the beaches with a longer walk from parking lot to sand. And being on the sound, the water was about ten degrees warmer than the ocean-side beaches.

Usually not crowded. A beautiful, large sandy beach, calm, warm water for swimming, plenty of parking, clean rest rooms available.

We've been coming here for over 30 years. There is almost always a breeze. There are bathrooms, a snack shack and the ice cream truck always always shows up. You need a pair of water shoes because there are small rocks as you walk in, but the water is clean. You can fish off the piers. If you haven't brought lunch with you, we recommend The Mason Jar in Harwich.

Red River beach continues to be our favorite beach . It is ideally located on Nantucket Sound, clean, has restrooms, plenty of parking, visiting vendors and jetties for fishing.

Smaller beach that is never too crowded. Some waves. Lots of shells. It is worth getting the parking pass from the town if you are going to be there for a week or more!

Plenty of parking with multiple entrances to the beach. It is a long beach so we were able to find a not so crowded area on a pretty busy day. Also had a bathroom, food truck and icecream truck! I great beach day.

Clean, big, nice sea to swim in, nice sand for building castles, lots of parking, toilets and this year a great outside catering van this year, staffed by some very charming and friendly U.S. army veterans.

Wonderful beach with almost 200 parking spaces. Even during busy times of the day we always found this to have plenty of room. Very clean and convenient. Cars can drive up almost right on top of it. Best in the vacinity imho.
great family beach, short distance from the cottage [Property ID 7091]. Easy parking, clean beach and restrooms.
