Cape Cod Beach Reviews


The sunsets there are amazing and when low tide occurs you can walk quite a distance before actually hitting the water.

We love low tide at First Encounter, especially at sunset. You can walk out on the soft sand, explore the shallow pools, and take in the beauty. For people with limited mobility, it is easy to get from the parking area to a nice bench.

We got to see seals playing in the waves. Beach wasn't crowded and easy to walk.
