This long, narrow sand beach borders the low running crab grass-covered sand dunes, just north of Pamet Harbor. From this picturesque beach you'll see boats heading in and out of the harbor. The shallow, sloping ocean floor and the typically calm, warmer waters provide the ideal environment for families with small children or senior adults. Wade along the warm ocean inlets which flow behind the beach for a more secluded change of pace. Corn Hill, the historic location where the Pilgrims found a cache of Indian corn which fed them through their first winter, is also nearby. This is the only bay-side Truro town beach which is open to the public, for a daily parking fee of $15. Parking at Corn Hill is generally plentiful. Restroom facilities are available, and lifeguards protect swimmers. An ice cream truck routinely visits to offer snacks and refreshments.

How to get there: Corn Hill Road from Castle Road, off Route 6 in Truro
