Skaket Beach Orleans
Skaket Beach in Orleans is a popular Cape Cod Bay beach with warmer water and smaller waves than its ocean side cousins. Similar to other bay beaches, it expands exponentially when the tide is out, providing endless room to stroll and explore. The beach is located just north of Namskaket Marsh, and south of Rock Harbor, giving beachgoers the opportunity to watch the boats going in and out when the tide is in.
With a good size parking lot, food, restrooms, and powdery sand, the beach fills up quickly on warm summer days so plan on arriving early. From Route 6 take Route 6A north, turn left on West Road, then turn left on Skaket Beach Road.
