Haigis Beach

Old Wharf Road, Dennis, MA
Crowds enjoy a sunny afternoon at Haigis Beach in Dennis, Cape Cod.

Bordered by jetties and backed by rock lined dunes, Haigis Beach features a playground for kids and benches overlooking the beach to take in the sights. Crowds typically aren’t an issue but the beach is very narrow so there isn’t a ton of room to spread out or play games. A staircase over the rock wall provides the only access to the water, so nearby Glendon Road Beach is a better choice for those with disabilities.
