The Upper Cape is the section closest to the mainland. This portion of the city includes the towns of Bourne, Falmouth, Mashpee, and Sandwich. Falmouth is most-used ferry connection to Martha's Vineyard. The Mid-Cape includes the towns of Barnstable, Dennis and Yarmouth.

The Mid-Cape area features many beautiful beaches, including warm-water beaches along Nantucket Sound, e.g. Kalmus Beach in Hyannis, which gets its name from one of the inventors of Technicolor, Herbert Kalmus. Cape Cod's beaches and dunes lure travelers from all over the world. The Lower Cape is the narrower portion of the cape.
