Hen Cove

Circuit Avenue, Pocasset, MA 02559
A group enjoys a summer morning at Hen Cove in Bourne, Cape Cod.

The large crescent beach on scenic Hen Cove is a favorite of families in the neighborhood, and for good reason. The beach is tucked into Hen Cove and protected from the rougher surf of Buzzards Bay, making it great for families with young children. There’s typically plenty of room to spread out and the parking lot lining the beach offers easy access. Like almost all Bourne beaches however, parking is limited to resident passholders only so try Monument Beach to the north if you’re visiting.

Parking: 50 spaces

  • Season (Resident) $25
  • Season (Resident Senior 65+) $15

All Bourne public beach parking lots are resident-only with the exception of Monument Beach. Resident passes are valid at all Bourne beaches.
