First Encounter Beach – Slideshow

First Encounter Beach
Written by Brian Tarcy


EASTHAM – When we visited recently, it was not our first encounter with First Encounter Beach, where the Pilgrims had their first encounter with native Americans in 1620 before the Pilgrims moved on to Plymouth, of all places.

While the Pilgrims made their own decision back then, we decided this was a pretty nice beach and so we stuck around for a while on a recent afternoon with the tide going out and a spot of grass appearing on a sandbar.

It wasn’t crowded.

Maybe everyone was in Plymouth.
