Beaches & Water Related Activities on Cape Cod

Pictured below is one of the finest public beaches on Nantucket Sound - Kalmus Beach. Kalmus Beach is located about 3/4 of a mile from the Inn.

Kalmus Beach Hyannis
Kalmus Beach - down the street

A second beach is 1/4 mile closer to the Inn - Veteran's Beach.

Veteran's Beach is wonderful for small children because it has no great drop-off and the waves are very small and gentle.

Both of these beaches have restrooms and Veteran's Beach has a snack bar as well. The water temperature at these two Hyannis beaches is the warmest ocean water between Cape Cod and Florida! This is because the Nantucket Sound is relatively shallow and has a sandy bottom. This reflects the sunlight and warms the water appreciably. In addition, the Gulf Stream flows through just the other side of Nantucket and this brings warm water all the way up from the Caribbean to this part of Cape Cod.

Make sure that you take a wonderful Sunset Cruise or Lighthouse Cruise aboard the newest and best addition to Hyannis' tourism fleet the Bay Spirit. Click here to visit their web site for more info.


Complimentary local beach shuttle stops in fromt of the Inn during the summer Here you can see the big car ferry leaving for
Nantucket. This photo was taken from the balconyat the Harbor House Inn. The ferry passes by both
of Hyannis' beaches several times a day.
