Bayview Beach is a small beach located at the end of Bayview Street and is great for watching the Hyannis  -Nantucket ferries, fishing boats, and yachts travel by. This beach is free year round but has limited parking. Sand has a light mix of shells and pebbles and shells with clumps of seaweed scattered across the beach. There is a sharp drop-off on a portion of the beach near the water; depending on the tide, the drop-off will not be visible. The water is warm for a New England beach and calm with the exception of boat wakes.
