Every town on the Cape & Islands claims they have the best beaches, and the town of Falmouth is no different! The beaches here are perfect for families looking to enjoy the sun, sea, sand and surf.
Among the popular beaches is Falmouth Heights Beach. It is clean, family-friendly, and The British Beer Company, a local favorite eatery, is right across the street.
Old Silver Beach is on the western shores of Falmouth and offers a spectacular view of Buzzards Bay. The warm water, soft sand, and small waves make it perfect for families with young children. There is a seasonal food stand, but parking is limited, so you might want to aim for an early arrival!
Also overlooking Buzzards Bay is Chapoquoit Beach. More family-friendly waters can be found here, as well as fine white sand that is perfect for sand castle building! When the tide goes out, youngsters (and adults!) may enjoy exploring the many sand bars and tidepools.
If quiet beaches are more your scene, then be sure to visit Menauhant Beach, which is long and narrow and overlooks Vineyard Sound. There is lots of room here, as it’s barely ever crowded.
Another quiet beach is Wood Neck Beach. There is plenty of room to park at this Sippewissett area beach. Tide pools full of crabs and hermit crabs and warm water to play in await you here.
You’re bound to enjoy a day at any Falmouth beach—your only trouble will be choosing which one to visit first!
