If you are looking for an epic beach walk, the longest beach in Massachusetts has a stunning six-mile stretch for you to wander.

On the SouthCoast, the gorgeous two-miles of sand at Westport's Horseneck Beach seems like a super sunny day stroll. But farther down 195, beach-lovers will find an even longer stretch of sand that has been welcoming sunseekers since the early 1700's.

No surprise, Massachusetts' longest beach is on the Cape. Though now that the tourists are clearing out, it might be the perfect time of year to explore it in peace.

Sitting along the "bicep" of Cape Cod's arm is Sandy Neck Beach in Barnstable.

This six-mile stretch of sand includes 4,700 acres of marshes, maritime forests and sand dunes, who cottages are recognized as a Cultural Historic District.

Visitors can hike, swim or walk along the beach from the Sandy Neck Gate House all the way out to the Sandy Neck Lighthouse at the entrance of Barnstable Harbor.

It's a perfect day trip for nature lovers, due to the multiple habitats along the shore and the numerous species of plants and wildlife that call them home. And though the summer brings families by the hundreds to its shores, the fall months can be a lot quieter.

They can also be a lot cheaper.

During beach season (Memorial Day through Labor Day), parking passes from Barnstable or Sandwich are required to park at Sandy Neck Beach. After Labor Day however, only those looking to park campers or drive off road vehicles on the beach need passes to do so.

So if a sunny, fall day seems like the perfect time to stroll along one of Massachusetts' most beautiful beaches, this six-mile stretch at Sandy Neck is worth the trip.

See Inside Jimmy Buffett's Staggering $6.9 Million Palm Beach Mansion

Jimmy Buffett sure knew how to live the good life. His former 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom, 4,039-square-foot mansion in the exclusive Eden Properties neighborhood in Palm Beach is exactly the kind of laid-back home you'd expect the superstar to relax in when he was off the road.

The interior centers around a combined dining and living room with eye-popping vaulted ceilings topped off by skylights, while a massive wall of mahogany-framed sliding glass doors looks out over the pool area outside. The kitchen is decorated in gleaming white, and each of the bedrooms has its own attached bathroom, while the massive master suite also has sliding glass doors that open to both the pool and a bathroom that looks like it belongs in a high-end resort.

The exterior of the house is just as striking, centered around a sparkling pool of deep cobalt blue. The pool area features plenty of lounging, and a loggia just outside the living room offers open-air dining. There are lush gardens, brick paths that walk through elaborate pergolas and a fountain. The property also features a two-car garage with a guest suite overhead, and it offers deeded access to the beach nearby.
