One of the more unique Falmouth beaches, rocky and relaxing Wood Neck Beach is a must-visit for families with children. The beach has two distinct sections that will keep visitors of all ages entertained for the entire day. The western shore offers a more traditional beach experience, with relaxing views of Buzzards Bay and fantastic sunsets. The beach is a bit narrow but does expand as the tide goes out. Toward the north end of the parking lot, the beach wraps around the point to the inlet of a marsh where kids will delight in exploring for critters and wildlife while splashing around in the shallow waters. There’s no option to pay for daily parking, so be sure to pick up a beach sticker ahead of time.
