For a quiet beach getaway, head to Gray’s Beach. This little-known beach on the north side of Yarmouthport is fun for the whole family, and no beach sticker is required. Find calm water, picnic tables, restrooms, and a playground. Witness crabs, quahogs, osprey, and other wildlife in a natural setting as you walk the 860-foot Bass Hole Boardwalk that stretches across lush marshland near the beach.
