Dowses Beach

East Bay Rd
Osterville, MA 02655


  • Great fishing off the raised platform and the end of the pier
  • Beach opens st 9 daily. Come early to avoid waiting in a long line. Love this beach as you can walk to the backside and look for fiddler crabs. Tons of shells.
  • Walk to the back beach to see tons of fiddler crabs
  • Great beach
  • They wont let you bring your car to drop off and pick up, pretty rough if you have a few small children with you
  • This is my favorite beach on the whole planet. I especially lovr the jetty of rocks all the fishermen sit out on.
  • Camp out by the dunes if you want to avoid what can be a rather chilly but welcomed ocean breeze.
  • If you don't have a Barnstable sticker either park your car at the church up the street and walk or arrive at 8:30 AM on a weekday and you can park at the beach
  • Best beach on the Cape!!
