670 Ocean Street, Hyannis, MA 02601
Located on a peninsula at the mouth of Lewis Bay, Kalmus Beach offers a unique experience with 360 degree views and top-notch facilities. The steady southwest winds make Kalmus one of the most popular destinations in New England for windsurfing. Boat watchers will enjoy sitting on the jetty and watching ships of all sizes come in and out of the harbor. Seaweed can be an issue at times, but the shell lined shore is sure to keep young beachcombers entertained for hours. For a bite to eat, the snack bar located at the end of the parking lot in the middle of the peninsula is one of the best on Cape Cod.
Kalmus Beach can get crowded in spots, but with a little bit of walking you can usually find enough space to stretch out on either the bay side of the beach or the ocean side. Show up early to get the best parking spots closest to the snack shack and paths to both sides of the beach.
