There’s plenty to enjoy about Cape Cod Beaches, from the sand and water to plentiful outdoor family fun. But when it comes to one particular beach, it’s the history that really makes the location come full circle.

Appropriately named First Encounter Beach, the location gained its name generations ago. It’s the place where the pilgrims and Native Americans first met before continuing on to Plymouth. Now, hundreds of years later, First Encounter Beach remains a site where American history meets the bay.

There’s already a plaque marking the location on the beach, plus the Salt Pond Visitors Center is a great place to learn more about local history. But plans are underway to bring even more attention to the site in the coming years.
