Popular among families, kayakers, paddleboarders and fishing enthusiasts, Joshua’s Pond features small sandy beach on a clean freshwater pond. The beach area is relatively narrow so it can get a bit crowded during peak season. It’s also only accessible via a set of concrete stairs, so you may want to consider other options if accessibility is an issue. Parking is limited to Barnstable resident passholders.
Parking: 37 spaces
- Resident parking only ($50/season)
