Head of the Meadow Beach

Truro, Massachusetts

Located on the town's untamed Atlantic side, Head of the Meadow Beach is ideal for romantic picnics, long walks, and adventurous over-sand driving. Plus, warm summer water and an offshore sandbar make this a good spot for swimming. The remains of the sailing ship Frances, wrecked in 1872, can be seen from shore during super low tides.

Hotel Recommendation: Stay at the Sandbars Inn. Read our review.
