Coast Guard Beach – Eastham, Massachusetts

You won’t have to travel internationally to visit Massachusetts’s Coast Guard Beach in Eastham! Consistently ranked as one of the top family friendly beaches in the United States, Coast Guard Beach offers many free activities along it’s sandy shore. Take a bike ride along the 24-mile bike path or paddle through Eastham’s unspoiled marsh. Need to rent a bike? Castaways Marine has you covered and when you’ve finished the ride, set sail on one of their kayaks or surfboards. The outer beach, or “backside,” of Cape Cod has been the notorious graveyard for more than 3,000 ship since the wreck of Sparrowhawk in 1626. Have your little citizens discover a piece of American history here!
