Cold Storage Beach

Pond Rd, Truro, MA 02642
Sailboats sit just offshore at Cold Storage Beach in Truro, Cape Cod.

Don’t be scared off by the name, Cold Storage Beach features warm, calm, sheltered water and is great for swimming. The beach itself is relatively small and bounded by private beaches on both sides, but limited parking helps to keep the crowds light. Daily passes are not available, so try Corn Hill Beach instead if you’re looking for a single-day trip to a bay side Truro beach.
