Monument Beach looks out upon the Bourne entrance to the Cape Cod Canal and the Monument Beach Marina. It has a wooden raft on which swimmers can rest or sunbathe. Situated at a small harbor, it is a pleasant place to spend the day in the sun and water and is very popular with windsurfers. Lifeguards are on duty and there is a concession stand, volleyball net and bathhouse on site.
