Forbes: America's Top 10 Beaches of 2013

2 of 11

9. Coast Guard Beach, Eastham, Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Fittingly for Cape Cod, this is one beach where history is easily accessible. Dr. Beach notes its geological history (“a sand spit attached to the glacial cliffs”) and the former coast guard station on the bluffs, and the pilgrims and Native Americans had their first encounter just across the peninsula. Because the sand is relatively coarse and the water temperatures top out at 60 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit, most bathers take just a quick dip.
