A popular haunt for local kayakers is the beautiful Megansett Beach, located in North Falmouth on 239 Country Road. With a large dock for mooring boats and a swimming platform for divers, Megansett provides a large variety of beachfront activities. From the kayaker’s standpoint, the lush cove created by the tidal inlet allows for a thrilling challenge- meandering through the twists and turns of the channel, avoiding sandbars and clumps of beach grass, and taking in the wild beauty of the nature of Cape Cod. The reward, however, is spectacular, being able to spot great birds, such as the crane, in their natural habitat while immersed by the scent of salty war and warm rays of the hot summer sun.
