Mayo Beach
Cape Cod, Massachusetts


The warm, shallow, and calm water along this beach make it an ideal destination for families with toddlers and young children. The sand is soft, not rocky, and makes for easy barefooted walking. With a playground across the street, fabulous views of the local fishing boats, and restrooms and picnic tables on site, Mayo Beach successfully combines family fun and summer sun.
