Located in the mid-Cape, Mayflower beach is off of Dunes Road in Dennis. The views from the tidal flats during low tide allow for some great photos, and the sunsets can be pretty amazing. The beach is large with lifeguards and plenty of room for games. You will find public restrooms, a boardwalk, a picnic area, and parking as well.
You can stay in a variety of accommodations from little shanties to large mansions along the beach. You will find mini golf and golf nearby, and there is a shopping center. The Ice Cream Smuggler is nearby for a refreshing ice cream at the end of the day.
Mayflower Beach is really three beaches in one so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a spot away from the crowds. People love this beach at low tide because there are a few hundred feet of tidal flats that form small pools to enjoy and give beachgoers a lot of extra space for a few hours.
You will find three main parking areas at Dunes Road, Chapin Beach Road, and Bayview Road. They correspond to the three beaches that make up Mayflower beach. You have to pay for parking from Memorial Day through Labor Day, but you can buy a season pass.
