Take in a sweeping panoramic view of Megansett Harbor and Buzzards Bay from Megansett Beach. Lots of Falmouth families come to the beach each summer to enjoy the harbor’s calm, inviting waters. Just beyond the shore, there’s a raft anchored where youngsters love to make a splash! At low tide, wade out to a sandbar where you’ll find soft, fine sand. Thanks to its roughly western-facing position, Megansett is also a stunning place to take in the sunset year-round.
Megansett Harbor is loaded with sailboats, offering a classic Cape Cod view. Many boats launch from Megansett Harbor Landing right next to the beach. Parking is a bit limited, get here early to find a spot. A resident parking sticker is required during the summer.
Habitats & Wildlife
Megansett Beach’s shoreline is large and sandy, with lots of shells to discover. Shellfish live in the harbor’s sandy bottom, and many of their shells eventually wash up on shore. A beachcomber will find scallops, quahogs, mussels, boat shells, and jingle shells – also known as mermaid’s toenails!
For those who want to dig deeper, Megansett Beach is open to recreational shellfishing on weekends. Just get yourself a Falmouth shellfishing permit, and you’ll be digging for your own quahogs in no time!
