Old Silver Beach is a great beach on Buzzards Bay in Falmouth that is minutes from the Bourne Bridge down Route 28. It is a nice family-friendly beach that usually has some of the warmer water on the Massachusetts Coast (though that isn’t often saying all that much). It is also one of the closest Cape Cod Beaches to Boston, Providence and other areas on the east coast.
Directions: Old Silver Beach is very easy to get to. Make your way to Route 28 South after crossing the Bourne Bridge or cutting across the Cape next to the Canal after crossing the Sagamore Bridge and the exit for Brick Kiln Road. From that exit follow the signs to the beach which is located on Quaker Road in Falmouth. If you’re using a GPS device the following address should get you there:
Falmouth, MA 02540
Facilities, Fees and other information: Parking during the busy summer season at Old Silver Beach is $20 for the day and there is a full complement of facilities open during the busy season as well including a bathhouse, outdoor freshwater showers and a snack bar. There also lifeguards on duty. If you’re looking for a place to stay or a nearby bar or restaurant there is the Sea Crest Beach Hotel right next door (address is 350 Quaker Road in Falmouth), for more information visit their website.
