Ample parking close to the sand, short walk to water & close to the house. Go early or late to avoid the crowds.

This was a great beach! They had amenities at the end of the beach; Restrooms, changing facility and a small snack bar. Although I did not travel with children there was a few swings there that kids were enjoying. The only issue for me was the amount of seaweed but this may be a Cape Cod issue.

The beach was wonderful - our new favorite at the Cape! It was an easy, quick walk, it was not overcrowded and provided a snack bar, restrooms and swing set. The beach itself is a long beautiful stretch and a very relaxing setting. On the 4th of July we were able to walk down to the beach and watch amazing fireworks in every direction! We will definitely rent in this area again!

We have always loved West Dennis Beach. We find private little areas to sit and on a windy day can watch the kite surfers. Great place to walk.

We go here because it's never crowded. One less star for the copious seaweed and for the rocky as heck beach (buy beach shoes, they are worth it). Otherwise, the sand is beautiful and the sunrises/sunsets are amazing. This is by far the best beach to watch a full moon rise. We've been hooked since 2013.

There is plenty of room for many people and you are not on top of each other for room. Great beach for walking. Many shells

A beautiful long beach for swimming and walking. Bass River is at the end of this beach and extra feature is the viewing of windsurfers during the late afternoon.

This beach is great because there's almost always parking. It's also spacious so that you don't feel like other beachgoers are right on top of you. There are bathrooms and a food stand.

While I LOVE the beaches on the Outer Cape, we choose to drive a short 5 minutes to West Dennis Beach. There's a new restroom facility and outdoor shower near the end, and typically the beach is not crowded at all. And, great sand! We purchased a week's pass at Town Hall on Saturday morning and used the beach every day, so parking was less than $11/day.

Parking at the beach is $20. The beach is lovely with plenty of parking while we were there. The parking is Right next to the beach for easy loading and unloading of your car. The beach is well guarded and the sand great..

We went to a number of beaches on our stay but this one was easily accessible with a toddler....drive right up rather than having to carry everything across long parking lots.

So easy! Just pull up your car and unload just feet from the sand and water. The ocean tends to be calm and like a pool some days.

West Dennis Beach has wonderful sand, spots to fly a kite and is great for a brisk walk. Bathrooms are available in multiple places and if you don't pack a lunch, there is a snack bar.

I think this was the beach - long and narrow - great for walking, both on the beach and along the adjacent parking lot, with views of the ocean and the inlet. Fantastic to watch the kite/wind surfing. Enjoyed the boat ride on the river.
