What makes Ellis Landing unique?

Ellis Landing is a public beach in Brewster that has a smaller parking lot with about 16 spaces. It is on the eastern side of Brewster and borders Ocean Edge Resort. In season, you will see a sea of blue Ocean Edge umbrellas and chairs directly to the right or west of the beach.

The Brewster Flats are formed by a sandbar that makes what I call a shallow swimming pool. Parents can relax and let the little ones splash around in the surf without being overtaken by gigantic waves. Disclaimer, you know you’ve always got to watch them though, you never know what they’re going to get into. At low tide, the flats become a playground for amateur oceanographers, big, small, young, and old. The array of sea life that one can observe here is magnificent and always changing. You’ll find tidal pools, clam beds, oyster farms, seaweed, marsh grass, small collectible stones, huge boulders, and more. The flats also make for dramatic photos at sundown as the tides make for rippled, wavy patterns in the sand that collect water and reflect back the amazing colors of the setting sun.
