Two-minute drive to the Chapoquoit Grill restaurant, known for great brick-oven pizza.
Chapoquoit and Old Silver beaches are known for great swimming (warm, clear water and gentle waves), white sand and sunsets. Lifeguards and resident-only parking. Parking stickers are required in July and August through Labor Day. Renters may buy a weekly parking sticker, good at all Falmouth beaches, for $60.
