Bristol Beach

Menauhant Road, East Falmouth, MA 02536
Beachgoers relax along the jetty at Bristol Beach in Falmouth, Cape Cod.

If you’re looking to avoid the crowds of nearby Falmouth Heights Beach, jetty-lined Bristol Beach is a good option. That’s not to say that you’re going to get a private beach experience, but it does tend to be a bit quieter and low key than Falmouth Heights. The large parking lot offers easy access to the beach. There are actually two lots separated by an outlet to the pond across the street and passholders can park in either one. There’s no daily parking option, so if you’re visiting you may want to try Menauhant Beach or Surf Drive Beach instead.
