Columbus Avenue Beach is great for watching the Hyannis-Nantucket ferries, fishing boats, and yachts travel by. The draw to this beach is that small at maybe 75 feet wide. The public beach is adjacent to Englewood Private Beach. Sand has a mix of crushed shells and pebbles with bands of seaweed at the water’s edge. The walk onto the beach is slightly steep; once on the beach the descent to the water is gradual. Waves are small with the exception of boat wakes.
