PLEASE NOTE FOR 2013 summer season: Due to an ongoing construction project, Paines Creek Beach is not accessible by road (vehicle or walking). The beach itself is only accessible by walking from the Mant’s Landing parking area.

The water on the bay side of Cape Cod is warmer than the ocean side and has less surf, making it a favorite destination for the under-7 set. Paines Creek Beach in Brewster is one of those gems that seems to have been built for the pail-and-shovel crowd, who lounge in the tidal pools or scramble to find fiddler and horseshoe crabs. Plan to be there at high tide, or you may have to walk a mile to getf from the beach to the water's edge.
