Beach Activities




Beach recreation on Cape Cod & the Islands can range
from board sports like surfing and bodyboarding to more marine-related pursuits like boating and fishing.

For the less strenuously inclined, there are also more sedate seashore activities like sand sculpting and beach yoga.

Then there are cloudy days when the beach isn’t an option – these times call for a little more creativity. With its unique topography of beaches, tidal inlets, marshland and sand dunes, this region offers great opportunities for other outdoor pastimes like birdwatching, hiking, camping and bicycling. If you feel like hitting the links, public and private golf courses abound in almost every Cape Cod town.

Sunshine or not, the Cape & Islands are a perfect place to visit as they provide infinite diversions for singles, couples and families on vacation.
