Breakwater Landing is one of the most popular beaches in town and has an ample parking area. Rocky. Lots of pools at low tide. Still fair amount of beach at high tide. Funny seeing boats just sitting on sand. Families and older people. Good-sized parking. Not too crowded. Very calm. Can walk out REALLY far at low tide. A lot more to look at. "Pretty" potties. Right off parking. No attendant. Bike rack.

Found just a short drive off 6A in the center of Brewster, this Cape Cod Bay beach is a popular spot for families. Gentle dunes border the soft white sand beach. The water is warm and great to swim in at a comfortable 65-70 degrees in the summer. As with all eight Brewster bay beaches, the flats are incredible at low tide and extend for almost a mile out into the bay. This makes a perfect playground for children to explore the tidal pools searching for small fish, shells, and crabs. Beachgoers should be cognizant of the tide times, as the water rushes in quickly at high tide. There are no lifeguards. Portable toilets are located in the relatively large parking lot. Although there is no snack bar, an ice cream truck routinely visits to offer snacks and refreshments and the Brewster General Store is located on 6A at the intersection of Breakwater Road.


Tips: 

Stretching out towards the ocean for miles at low tide, Breakwater beach is great for families with younger children. Kids can explore the many tidal pools or just run around in the vast expanse of sand. Parents will like the calmwater, and the large, convenient parking lot. There's a bike rack for those athletic folk, and portable toilets for when nature calls. A nice view of open water is only broken by the sight of boats stranded on the sand during low tide.
