The Cape Cod forecast is calling high teens and low twenties out of the east. What beaches work best for an east wind??? Thanks.

West Dennis is your best bet if its true east. If it has a northly component, go to the North side of the cape,Chapin,Pleasant Bay. Stay away from the outer Cape, unless your really good and can deal with dead onshore winds, and waves. Kalmus can be, OK, but a wind shadow is
usually created by Great Island.

Thanks for the info. I agree, Kalmus is doable for East and Southeast, but it sounds like West Dennis is better. Thanks!

Just looking at the forecast for the weekend - a pretty good east wind. Im partial to Pleasant Bay (Chatham-Harwich-Orleans). If its a true east, the Orleans side is good, NE the Chatham side, all parking is free OK @ Orleans, Better @ Chatham. Weed fins help this time of year.
