Visiting Cape Cod, one must have a plan. Fortunately, that plan only has to involve rest, relaxation, and of course, beaches.

In other words, which of the numerous beaches in and around Cape Cod will you be visiting? There are so many to choose from, but at The Lighthouse Inn, we like to guide our guests with the best possible advice, so we’ve thought it out and finally narrowed down the choices to give you the five best beaches in Cape Cod. Here they are:

Beach #1 – Cold Storage Beach – Dennis

Cold Storage Beach is always on the list of great beaches. This uncrowded beach features breathtaking views, a calm surf and plenty for everyone as well as disabled access. It is one of the best beaches in the area for taking scenic coastal walks!

Beach #2 – Red River Beach – Harwich

Situated on Nantucket sound, this uncrowded beach features breathtaking views, a calm surf and tons of space for everyone as well as disabled access and a boat ramp! It’s perfect for swimming and boating adventures. Come to sunbathe, play volleyball, enjoy the funny seals nearby, bike, or boogie-board!

Beach #3 – Nauset Beach – Orleans

This beach is great for swimming as well as surfing and fishing. Fishermen love the bass and blues in the water, and if you’re with a fisherman but don’t want to partake in the pastime, no worries — lots of areas to sunbathe are nearby. Just be sure to arrive soon as the parking lot fills up fast!

Beach #4 – Hardings Beach – Chatham

Love beach games? This is the beach for you! Take your pick of Frisbee, volleyball, Wiffleball, beach bocce, and many other activities! Kayaking and sail boating are also common pastimes in the area, and there’s even a location to launch your boat.

Beach #5 – The Lighthouse Inn

To round off this list, we just had to mention the two private onsite beaches at The Lighthouse Inn. Featuring picturesque, Cape Cod views just moments from your front door, our beaches feature a gentle surf with a longshore so you can soak up the sun during your getaway. Make sure you stop by and experience the warm, white sands of our beaches for yourself.
