Best Cape Cod Beaches

Some beaches are ideal for young children while others provide the perfect atmosphere for water sports like windsurfing. All the salt water beaches allow one to swim laps, build sand castles, fly kites and just enjoy sitting in the sun. It is worth noting that resident only beaches are available in some of the Cape towns. They are a nice perk for folks that own property on the Cape because they tend not to be as crowded.
All beaches should be explored for their individual beauty. We have our favorites. Here they are. By no means are these the only great beaches on Cape Cod.

Client Testimonials

We feel absolutely blessed to have been referred to Agnes and Ed Chatelain. As brokers for the estate sale of my mother’s home following her death, they took on two stressed out co-executors, both of whom lived out of state. My brother and I had little knowledge of the area or of local regulations and resources. The Chatelain’s level of expertise, energy, and willingness to go the extra mile for us was incomparable. Agnes responded to every question or concern almost instantaneously, kept us informed of every detail, reassured as needed, and deftly brought us through inspections, sale and closing with efficiency and ease. The combination of professionalism, practicality, and warmth made the working relationship an absolute joy.
