Cape Cod Beaches
Truro is one of the last towns of the Cape to retain the "feel" of Olde Cape Cod. Located on the outer Cape, Truro lacks the commercialization of other parts of the Cape. Truro's Cape Cod Beaches are split between the calm waters and expansive tidal flats of Cape Cod Bay, and the raw, untamed Cape Cod beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.
Beach stickers can be purchased from the Truro Beach office, located at 36 Shore Road (next to the North Truro Post Office). The sticker office is open from 8AM - 4PM. For more information on Truro beach stickers, call 508-349-3635.
