First Encounter Beach
The historic First Encounter Beach is located in Eastham, on Cape Cod Bay. The good-sized beach gets its name from the location where the Pilgrims first encountered Native Americans. There is adequate parking, small waves, and public restrooms. The beach is a good choice for families, beach games, or showing off your sand castle skills. First Encounter Beach is located on Samoset Road, east off Route 6 and south of Herring Brook Beach.
