Brewster is famous for the Brewster Flats, a phenomenon created by the ebb and flow of the daily tides when the waters recede out of Cape Cod Bay over 1 mile to reveal sandbars, clam beds and tidal pools teeming with sea life. To experience this at least once a day, visit one of Brewster’s beaches. From east to west these are: Crosby Landing, Linnell Landing, Ellis Landing, Breakwater Beach, Saint’s Landing, Mant’s Landing and Paines Creek. There are: portable toilets from June – Labor Day; No lifeguards; handicap access on some (beach wheelchair may be reserved from Council on Aging 508-896-2737.)
Freshwater Ponds that have public beaches and landings include Long Pond (Crowell’s Bog Road off of Rte. 124) where a lifeguard is on duty daily from 9am – 5pm June—Labor Day; Sheep Pond (Fisherman’s Landing off of Rte. 124), and Upper Mill Pond (Run Hill Road) where there is no lifeguard. Portable toilets at each beach June – Labor Day.
Parking Permits are REQUIRED at ALL of these beaches from the beginning of June until the day before Labor Day, 9 am – 4 pm daily!
