bay beaches Review
Brewster's bay beaches all have access to the coastal flats—a vast expanse of smooth sand and eel grass beds—that make for very interesting tidal-pool exploration. During particularly low tides, you can walk nearly a mile before reaching water. Eponymous roads to each beach branch off Route 6A; there's limited parking. All of the bay beaches require a daily, weekly, or seasonal parking pass (which for nonresidents cost $15, $50, and $125, respectively); these can be purchased at the town hall (508/896-4511). Breakwater Landing is one of the most popular beaches in town and has an ample parking area. Linnell Landing has a small lot and tends to fill up quickly. A favorite among the toddler crowd and the sunset seekers, Paine's Creek also lacks a large lot, but if you get there early enough, you can find a spot. Harder to find down a dead-end street but worth it, Robbin's Hill is known for its intriguing tidal pools. Farther east off Route 6A is Crosby Beach, ideal for beach walkers—you can trek straightway to Orleans if you so desire.
