3 of the Best Things You’ll Find When Exploring Paine’s Creek

1. Paine’s Creek Wild Swimming

One of the most popular places to go while exploring Paine’s Creek is the beachfront. It’s perfect for building sandcastles, scoping out the tiny creatures submerged in the tide pools, and swimming. If you visit the beachfront in the late summer and during the fall, you can even avoid parking fees! Once you arrive at the beach, the water is warm and inviting. Feel the sand between your toes before running into the waves. After your swim, enjoy a great landscape while sunning or picnicking. We recommend visiting at high tide so you don’t have to travel a whole mile to the water’s edge.

2. Paine’s Creek Kayaking

If you want to be out on the water for hours at a time, kayaking is the perfect way to do it! Explore Cape Cod from a completely different perspective. Begin your kayaking trek along Paine’s Creek and Cape Cod Bay at the mouth of the creek. By starting here, you’ll see stunning scenery as you paddle toward the bay. Enjoy marshland, wading birds, and Osprey nests as part of the setting and wildlife. You can even take a break from paddling and fish from your kayak!

3. Paine’s Creek Oysters

This creek is home to Cape Cod’s famous Paine’s Creek Oysters. These are delicious cocktail oysters that have the signature Cape flavor: briny, sweet, and clean. The fresh salt water from the creek gives the oysters a tasty, unique flavor. Enjoy the day at Paine’s Creek, then try some of these yummy morsels from one of the nearby seafood restaurants.
