Every Brewster beach has something special to offer ...
Marshlands and creeks, dunes and rock jetties. An abundance of wildlife. Osprey soaring. Fish breaking the surface just offshore. All beaches in Brewster MA are beautiful in their own way.

Breakwater is a very pretty Brewster beach that's perfect for youngsters and more mature visitors alike, with its gentle surf and miles of sandflats at low tide. As with most Cape Cod Bay beaches, water temps are comfortable enough for a quick dip (upper 60s to low 70s) by July.
At Breakwater there's a good amount of room to spread out - even at high tide. At low tide, moored boats are left high and dry on the sand. An odd sight to see!
Paine's Creek Beach
In my humble opinion, this is the ultimate Brewster beach.
Toddlers are totally in their element at Paine's Creek Beach with a plastic pail and shovel. Older children skimboard and swim to their hearts content, while parents relax in their folding chairs. Seniors love floating along on the calm, warm waters that flow from the creek to the bay.
One of the most amazing things about Paine's Creek Beach is the dramatic change in its landscape/seascape from high tide to low.
At high tide, waves lap against the seawall and jetties. As the tide recedes, colorful marsh grasses are exposed and "new" stretches of sparkling sand appear everywhere you look.
At the end of the day, this is one of the best places on the Cape to watch the sun set!
Talk about the best of both worlds ...
Within a very short drive or bike ride, you can go from the crystal clear, freshwater pond beaches at Nickerson State Park, to the refreshing saltwater at Crosby Landing or Linnell Landing on Cape Cod Bay.
Watch the sun rise over Cliff Pond in the morning, then see it set over the Bay in the evening. Doesn't that sound like the best of both worlds?!
Much like the other Bay beaches in Brewster, Crosby Landing and Linnell Landing are great for every age and swimming ability.
