Located on the small bayside shores of Orleans, Skaket Beach is a large, popular beach. The soft sand stretches far towards to the ocean during low tide, revealing lots of tidal pools for children to explore. The calm, warm water makes it a great place for kids to swim.
The parking lot only holds 175 cars and regularly fills up by 10 a.m. on sunny days. Make sure to get there early or risk waiting in line at the admission booth to find a spot.
