Mayflower Beach

Dunes Road, Dennis, MA 02638
Crowds spread out on the tidal flats of Mayflower Beach in Dennis, Cape Cod.

One of the most popular beaches on the Cape, Mayflower Beach features clean, white sand and top-notch amenities. Make sure to arrive early to avoid the parking crunch as the lots will be full by 9am during peak season. The beach does tend to get crowded during high tide but as the tide recedes the exposed tidal flats provide more than enough room to spread out. Young kids will enjoy splashing around in the calm, shallow waters and older kids will love the energetic party atmosphere. Full restroom facilities and a snack bar are open in-season.

Parking: 100+ spaces
