Scenic views of bay islands, Orleans and Chatham shoreline, and back side of the ocean barrier beach. Calm, warm water great for swimming and sailboarding. Limited parking by side of road near town landing. Small beach. Even smaller at high tide. No attendant. Private beach on one side. Lots of boats because of town landing.
A small beach right by the Orleans town landing, South Orleans Beach is home to many boats and a great view of Pleasant Bay. Its small beach shrinks during high tide, so it's best to visit when the tide is out.
Limited parking is available on the side of the road next to the town landing.
