Secret Sunken Meadow Beach – Eastham MA Life

Sunken Meadow Beach Cape Cod

Have you found the secret of Sunken Meadow Beach? Take a walk on the soft sands as we visit this special spot in Eastham, Cape Cod.

 

Sunken Meadow Beach in Eastham is a great bay side beach and is a great spot for surf casting at twilight. Steeper than some of the other bay beaches, you can enjoy the sunset with a higher vantage point. Like all bay beaches, this is ideal for young children especially as the tide goes out.

The water temperature is in the 60 to 70 degree range in the summer. This is a town beach, and the Town of Eastham charges per day for parking. There is limited parking at this beach, with only about 10 spaces (depending on the sand drifts).

Stickers can be obtained at the natural Resources Building at 555 Old Orchard Road, or Sunday only at the First Encounter Parking Lot.

Have you walked the shallow pools of Boat Meadow Beach? Put yourself on the beach with this short video from Eastham, Cape Cod.

Boat Meadow Beach in Eastham is a petite, marshy beach with many shallow water sandbars that make it great for children. The main sand bar is small, but can be a long walk, especially when it gets crowded. Off season, this is a local favorite.

There are boats that sit on the horizon against the dunes and tide of this scenic landscape. Parking is limited, so get there early or find alternate means of transportation.

Eastham

Welcome to Life in Eastham, Massachusetts.

Originally settled by the Nauset tribe, Eastham was the site where in 1620 a hunting expedition landed, comprised from the crew of the sailing vessel Mayflower, which had stopped in Provincetown harbor on Cape Cod Bay after a rough crossing of the Atlantic Ocean, which led to the first encounter of the Pilgrims and the local Nauset people at First Encounter Beach.

The area would not be settled by Europeans, however, until 1644.

The original lands included what are now the towns of Truro, Wellfleet, Eastham, Orleans and a small portion of Chatham. Eastham town was officially incorporated in 1651.
