A delightful beach community on Cape Cod Bay with a passion for preserving nature and culture.
Settled 1656 and blessed with nearly 11 miles of stunning beaches along Cape Cod Bay, it’s no surprise that the town of Brewster is steeped in maritime history. Simply drive along Main Street and you’ll be greeted by bustling seafood restaurants and immaculately preserved sea captain’s homes. All throughout town, museums, historic landmarks, and parklands abound, as Brewster residents take great pride in their community and have a steadfast commitment to maintaining its culture. Renowned for the Brewster Flats – the largest tidal flats in North America measuring 12,000 acres at low tide – Brewster offers the perfect blend of natural beauty and Old Cape Cod charm.
The town has a population of 9,820 and is located in the Lower Cape Region. Brewster is bordered by Dennis, Harwich, and Orleans.

Life in Brewster is all about connecting with the outdoors. Whether shell fishing for clams at Saint’s Landing Beach, biking the Cape Cod Rail Trail, or camping in Nickerson State Park, there are endless activities for families to immerse themselves in nature. The Punkhorn Parklands are another local favorite with an extensive network of trails waiting to be explored in this enchanting conservation area.
Of course, the picture-perfect beaches along Cape Cod Bay are perhaps the biggest draw for many of Brewster’s residents. Crosby Landing Beach and Breakwater Beach are two of the most popular spots to spend a hot summer day, but for those who prefer fresh water swimming, Long Pond Beach is an excellent option. After splashing around in the water, you can get your seafood fix at any one of the casual restaurants serving up fresh fare all across town. Kate’s Seafood on Paine’s Creek Road and JT’s Seafood on Main Street are two go-to spots to get delicious lobster rolls, fried clams, and other classics.
Brewster is an excellent play for golf enthusiasts to live, as it is home to Cape Cod National Golf Club, one of the most prestigious clubs in the region with an immaculate 18-hole championship course. Not to be overlooked is the Captain’s Course, named one of the best public courses in the country by Golf Digest, with 36 stunning holes that everyone can enjoy.
For many residents, the Brewster Store on Main Street is the heart of town. An old fashioned general store that feels akin to stepping back into a bygone era, you’ll find everything from salt water taffy and penny candies to oil lamps and model airplanes. Right next door, the Brewster Scoop is always a welcomed stop for an ice cream cone during the warmer months. The Woodshed, located just down the street, is a favorite local watering hole where residents go for cocktails and live music.
