About

With its expansive sandy beach Chatham Light Beach is a great place to walk along the water. Due to strong currents and tides sections of the beach are closed to swimming, but there still is plenty to do. Aside from walking, one can watch the seals, build sandcastles, sunbathe, or admire the nearby lighthouse.

Beautiful views and soft sand! Parking is drop-off only, so you do need a Beach pass to park on Bridge Street.

Quiet and not crowded....since we had bikes we were able to do drop off and pick up with the car first and then someone would ride a bike back to the beach. There isn't parking but a shuttle service to the beach on Main St. in Chatham. That seemed to work ok for others! No amenities and only portable bathrooms, but the location and beauty of the beach is worth spending a day!

Chatham Light beach is a quiet beach, not nearly as crowded as most. The sand is soft and white and wide stretches of beach available. Water is cool. View of the lighthouse behind, and the fishing boats pass by with lots of seagulls chasing their next meal. Occasional seal might follow too on their way to the fish pier.
