Loop Beach Notice

Attention Swimmers
Cotuit Loop Beach
Per Town of Barnstable Director of Recreation, DPW rakes the beach to the high tide mark once a week.  The rake will scoop up trash and seaweed to the high tide mark.  Anything below that mark gets left behind for mother nature to take care of.  Staff picks up trash on the beach every morning but doesn’t have the capability of doing the seaweed.
The last day of lifeguards at Loop Beach will be
August 6th.  On August 7th, there will still be a Gate Attendant to check stickers and open the bathroom.  Loop will be staffed in that capacity for as long as they can.
