Tips from locals
Neat spot for a moderate 3/4 mile (sunrise/dusk) walk from lot to beach. Kayak rentals, clever swimming areas and bridge jumping for older kids. 15 minute car ride, parking is limited. Rainy day option.
Historic Sandwich boardwalk. Stroll through the marshes towards the beach or, for the more adventurous, take a jump off the boardwalk during high tide.
Definitely worth the half hour drive. The boardwalk runs over inlets up to the dunes, then rewards you with a beautiful view of the bay. It is very busy in the height of the summer, but just as beautiful in the fall and winter. Just bring your windbreakers!
Best time to visit is at high and low tide. At high tide kids jump off the bridge, and at low tide you can explore the marsh and sandbars that appear. Even better if sunrise or sunset correlates. I recommend going during both tide times because the experience is so different.

“Fantastic Italian restaurant. Very pricey but really very good. Do try the fried mozzarella balls...ask if you don’t see them on the menu.”

“East Sandwich Beach is a very quiet, private stretch of one of Cape Cod's best beaches! Located off of Route 6A, to Ploughed Neck Rd. to North Shore Blvd. There are some year round families living here, but mostly this is the place for summer vacationers. East Sandwich Beach is famous for its huge sand bars at low tide, swimming, beachcombing and surf-casting. Bring along your pole to enjoy the catch at Scorton Creek, just down the way at the end of North Shore Blvd. ”
