A long stretch of beach that is popular for water sports, volleyball games, its ship wreck, biking along its 2 mile trail and seals. Like most beaches on the Cape, this beach is protected by sand dunes on one side. On the shore side you’ll see tide pools at low tide and seals bask in the sun. The beach area is soft sand.
Head of the Meadow Beach is also home to a ship wreck, the Frances, which sank in 1872. You can spot the rusty wreck at low tide so check the tide times and arrange your visit for low tide.
Bike along the 2 mile Head of the Meadow Trail, which leads from the beach and runs to the East Harbor past the Salt Meadow marshland!
Lifeguards are here in the summer months and there are restroom facilities.
Parking: Non-residents pay $15.00 daily parking fee from 10am-4pm starting third Saturday in June through Labor Day.
