If you’re looking for a place to surf on the Cape, look no further than the beaches on the Outer Cape. Here you will find ocean beaches that are on par with those in Hawaii and Florida offering some of the best waves, swimming, and sun available on the Atlantic coastline. Just a few miles away on the opposite coast, enjoy the stunning views of Cape Cod Bay while you soak up the sun along calmer waters. These beaches are not to be missed!
