Admired for its laid-back atmosphere, small-town vibe, and its pleasant beaches, Hyannis is a superb choice for your Cape Cod hideaway. While we know there are many Cape Cod beaches to choose from, we think we have some of the best around! So, whether you are sunning or swimming, head out to one of our top 5 beaches in Hyannis and see why we love it here.
Due to its constant cooling breeze and decent sized waves off Nantucket Sound, Kalmus Beach brings in windsurfers from all over. The beach is divided into two sections to keep swimmers and windsurfers from colliding. During the summer access to restrooms, showers and a tasty snack bar are available at the beach house located at the end of the beach.
As a more family-friendly beach, Keyes Beach is perfect for those days basking in the sun with its clean, soft white sand you want to stick your feet in. The calm surf also makes this the ideal beach for a quick dip in the ocean. Surrounded by a park, there are picnic tables and grills to use for a beachside lunch.
If you’re looking for the beach that has it all, then you found it at Veterans Beach. This beach pairs with an active park that offers volleyball, a playground, and barbeque grills. With views of Lewis Bay, this sandy spot is a popular place for beach lovers to enjoy picnics, cookouts, and recreational games. Also located on the beach are two historical shrines, the John F. Kennedy Memorial and Korean War Memorial. So, gather up the family and head out to this activity-filled beach.
The six-mile stretch of Sandy Neck Beach is the longest in the area, making it perfect for those long walks on the beach. While visitors love to come visit its pebbled sandy shoreline, Sandy Neck is also made popular by its off-road vehicle trails, which guide you to the unique history of this area. Reaching the end of the trails is the Sand Neck Colony and Lighthouse. Although the trail does not take you up to the property, views can best be seen from a boat in the harbor or across the shore. Or if you are feeling adventurous take the thirteen-mile, round trip, hike around Sandy Neck to see the lighthouse up close.
If you want to avoid the crowds and find your Cape Cod beach escape, then head to the secluded oasis of Eugenia Fortes Beach. This small but cozy beach is the perfect spot to kick back, read your favorite novel and take in views of the Hyannis Harbor. Parking is limited so get there early if you want a spot up close.
