Truro offers some of the most secluded and beautiful beaches open to the public on Cape Cod. The glacial cliffs/sand dunes of the Outer Cape reach their highest point in Truro, exceeding 100 feet in some spots. Miles and miles of continuous sand beaches remain largely undisturbed and undeveloped.
Head of the Meadow Beach is one of Truro's finest ocean-side beaches. There is actually a Truro town beach and also a National Park beach here. The beach itself is a popular family sun-bathing destination and is sometimes home to friendly volleyball matches. The ever-changing sandbars, which run along the beach, attract many swimmers and waders, and can provide some of the most exciting body-surfing available in the area. At low tide you may even catch a glimpse of the remains of one of Cape Cod's many shipwrecks.
This is the only ocean side Truro town beach which is open to the public, for a daily parking fee of $15. Both beaches have ample parking, restroom facilities, and lifeguards. An ice cream truck routinely visits to offer snacks and refreshments.
