Longnook Beach

Longnook Road, Truro, MA 02657
A couple descends the dunes at Longnook Beach in Truro, Cape Cod.

Backed by towering dunes and stunning panoramic ocean views, Longnook Beach offers a secluded escape from the rest of the world. Seals and sharks are active in the waters, and there is no lifeguard, so use caution when swimming. The steep climb down the dunes to the beach can be a challenge, so families with small children or individuals with disabilities may want to consider more easily accessible options like Head of the Meadow Beach. Parking is limited and fills up quickly in season, so plan on arriving early to secure a spot.
