Votes From Our Readers for the Best Cape Cod Dog Friendly Beaches!

  • Jen – MA – Our families’ favorite beach is Crowes Pasture in Dennis, MA. We love to drive on with all of our fun toys and our yellow Lab Wilson. It is fun for the whole family, lots to look at and explore!
  • Frederick – MA – Not one place, beach or otherwise, in Brewster is dog friendly!
  • Jim – MA – Race Point, without any hesitation. Everyone we’ve met there, life guards, shore rangers, pet owners, have all been very friendly.
  • Ron – MA – Red River Beach, great for pets, lots of beach to run on and usually other dogs to play with.
  • Gabriella – NY – Chatham, Dennis, Falmouth & Harwich Beaches because I don’t believe well behaved dogs should be on a leash when there is no one occupying “HUMAN” space. They should be able to enjoy nature & swimming as much as we do. These beaches are PERFECT for their enjoyment.
  • Vicki – CT – Marconi Beach
