First Encounter Beach is the actual site of the first encounter between the Pilgrims and the Indians when the Pilgrims were at the end of their voyage. They landed in Eastham after leaving Provincetown and before Plymouth. Both parties were surprised, and left quickly.
First Encounter is a beautiful, calm beach just off Samoset Road, in Eastham, Massachussets, with warm gentle water and a small patches of grass.
The tide goes way out, and the colors at sunset are spectacular. The water temperature is in the 60 to 70 degree range in the summer.
