Crosby Landing

Brewster, Massachusetts

Crosby Landing is one of the larger Brewster beaches and offers beautiful views of the Cape Cod Bay. Located off of Route 6A, it is a scenic bay beach with warm water, nice sand, and ample parking. Like all Brewster bay beaches, the low tides provide lots of room and little tide pools for children to explore small fish, shells, and crabs. This beach is ideal for beach walkers. It is also within walking distance of Nickerson State Park. There are no lifeguards on duty. Amenities include restrooms, a boardwalk, and a bike rack. Resident parking stickers are $20 and seasonal parking stickers are $150. The weekly parking fee is $50 and the daily parking fee is $15. For more information, call (508) 896-4511.

SOURCE INFORMATION

The Brewster County Department of Health and the Environment, and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation conduct beach water sampling weekly in Brewster County, MA. Beaches in Brewster are sampled on a weekly basis. Water samples are taken on Monday, and water quality results are posted by Wednesday.

The water at marine beaches is tested for the presence of Enterococci, a group of bacterial species typically found in human and animal intestines and are therefore present in sewage. Enterococci is also referred to as indicator organisms. Indicator organisms are used to predict the presence of pathogenic, or disease-causing, organisms associated with fecal contamination.

Swim Guide checks for the latest information daily, Monday - Friday during the swimming season (May through September).

A beach is marked Green when less than 104 units of Enterococci / 100 ml of water is present in a single sample, or when the geometric mean of 5 samples contains less than 35 units / 100ml of water.

A beach is marked Red when more than 104 units of Enterococci / 100 ml of water is present in a single sample, or when the geometric mean of 5 samples contains more than 35 units / 100ml of water.

A beach is marked Grey when there is no current or reliable monitoring information available.
