Snake Pond Beach

Snake Pond Road, Sandwich, MA 02644
People relax on the shore of Snake Pond Beach in Sandwich, Cape Cod.

Family-friendly Snake Pond Beach is a long strip of soft sand shoreline on freshwater Snake Pond. The beach itself is larger than most pond beaches, allowing ample room to spread out. Trees dot the shoreline and offer shade from the sun. The roped off lifeguard-protected swimming area is great for young kids and the calm waters are great for paddle boarding and kayaking. Parking is limited to resident passholders only.

Parking: 50+ spaces

  • Resident parking only ($35/season)
