This beach, located on Nantucket Sound, is one of the largest and most popular on Cape Cod. The water is a very pleasant temperature from mid-July to early September, and the gentle swells are refreshing compared to more placid Cape waters. It is generally free of seaweed and rocks, as well. There are lifeguards and bathhouses in season, as well as noisy kids and parking hassles, but that's summer on the Cape, right? The long beach and foamy surf make for beautiful walks in quieter seasons.
I grew up walking distance from Craigville Beach, and it is a part of my soul. Now my family and I live in Florida, also walking distance from the beaches here, but nothing is as soothing to me as stitting on Craigville watching the sun set.
As a tourist to the area be sure to grab a hot-dog at the Barnacle across the street and check out the boats in East Bay. If your up for a walk, head down the sand to the west and find where "new beach" draws a narrow path between the Nantucket Sound and the Centerville River.
I love the cape because my Nana lives in Centerville and my aunts and cousins have a summer house in Mashpee. The beach is awsome because the wind tell you if you can use things such as boogie boards and the lifeguards are there until 5:30 p.m. Also the snack bar is very close. Next the lockers hav locks and numbers so you don`t forget. Finally the beach has tons of activates like ping pong, fuseball, and volleyball. :)
Clean water, great temperature, walk for miles. good people watching. good snack bar across the street. Views of Hyannisport to the left, Osterville and on a clear day, the Vinyard on the right. Walk the beach to view multi million dollar homes on the water.
My family and I travel to this beach every year for our family vacation! The sand is soft on the feet and there's never any seaweed. There's always a nice breeze so you don't feel like you're roasting all day long. The bathrooms are clean and there's two places across the street where you can purchase food and they are very good. The lifeguards there are wonderful. We typically see the same lifeguards every year. It's a little expensive for the parking, but if you stay for 7 days you can purchase a beach pass and save a lot of money.
I visited Cape Cod many years ago now and the first thing I wanted to see was the Kennedy compound, the Kennedy museum, and all the Kennnedy stuff, so I ventured into Hyannis. Got to know the small town and drove a bit further and fell in love with Craigville Beach. It is a wide beach, with exposure to east, south, and west, so you can see the sun rise, the blazing sun during the day and the beautful sunsets over Nantucket Sound. The water is salty, not a strong current almost like a bay, no real waves like the ocean, but calming none the less, good for small kids. It is crowded in the summer and it costs about ten dollars to park all day. The sand is white, soft, and the southern breezes are delightful. You can see Squaw island from the beach where the Kennedy's vacationed and you can walk to the end of both sides, which form a big U
(about four miles). They have lifeguards on duty, a refreshment stand for burgers and pops, but a good beach umbrella, chair and a great book will do, very enjoyable experience
