Known for its warm and calm water, Cockle Cove Beach is a true family favorite, ideal for swimming and windsurfing, taking a stroll or lounging on the soft sand. While long and narrow, the beach is large enough to handle visitors and popular for kayakers due to its small waves.

Located in South Chatham, the saltwater beach includes seasonal lifeguards and restrooms, conveniently right on Cockle Cove Road and just off Route 28. While the protected swimming beach includes some shallow areas for the younger crowd, it’s also a great location for those of all ages.

monomoy point light

With nearly two centuries of history attached to Cape Cod, improvements at Monomoy Point Light aim to make the lighthouse more accessible to the public for possible generations to come. Located at the tip of Chatham’s Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge, the lighthouse dates back to the 1800s, but most recently had only been available for research by scientists and employees of the refuge.

That all changed when renovation crews began to install things like new drywall on the inside of the property and a wrap-around deck on the outside. In May of this year the Coast Guard airlifted the last of the supplies and materials necessary for a project focused on renovating the lighthouse and keeper’s cottage.

A joint venture of the wildlife refuge, town of Chatham,

saquatucket harbor harwich port

Plans are in the works to make improvements in the area of Saquatucket Harbor.  This popular Harwich Port is one of three active harbors in the town, popular for both recreational purposes and commercial use.  Located on the southern shore, the harbor provides floating boat docks and slips, boat lunching, parking and access to Nantucket Sound.

Because there are only a few good harbors located on the southern side of Cape Cod, slip space is at a premium.  The waiting list for slips at Saquatucket Harbor is usually between 12 to 15 years.  The Saquatucket Marina can currently accommodate sailboats, motorboats, a passenger ferry, charter fishing boats and a small fleet of commercial fishing boats.  The marina is open recreationally from May 1-November 15,
