Five Reasons to Love Brewster

It may not be as popular with tourists as some other towns on Cape Cod, but you’ll find plenty of things to love about Brewster.

Brewster Flats

Perhaps one of the most talked about destinations for both locals and visitors alike is the Brewster Flats. At high tide the beach looks much like any other beach, but during low tide, the sand stretches out for more than a mile. This a good time to view the unique flats as the receding water reveals tidal pools and oyster beds.


Of course, you can’t go to Cape Cod without setting foot on one of its beaches, and some of the best beaches are found in Brewster. A favorite of locals is Crosby Landing Beach. It’s calm enough for swimming, plus you can take in some fantastic views of the Bay while you’re there. Breakwater Beach is popular with families for its tide pools, while Mant’s Landing is fun for kayaking.


Ocean’s Edge is a private, 18-hole golf course, and the only Nicklaus-designed course on Cape Cod. Another private golf course in Brewster is the Cape Cod National Golf Club, which is a Par 72 course. In terms of public courses, Captains Golf Course has two, Par 72 courses. You can book a tee time yourself or schedule some lessons with one of the PGA pros at Captains.

Bike Trails

If you want to see some of the best of Brewster, but also want to get in a little outdoor recreation, you can do both on two wheels. The Cape Cod Rail Trail just happens to run right through Brewster. The paved trail stretches for 25 miles between Wellfleet and South Dennis.

Ocean Edge

Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club is another favorite destination in Brewster. Sure, the private club is home to one of town’s private golf courses, but the club also offers private beach access, tennis, and kayaking. In addition, you’ll find spa services, restaurants, pickleball and more.
