Hardings Beach was less crowded than Nauset following 2 days of overcast weather. If you like big waves, Nauset is the beach but get there early (10am) to beat the crowd. Water warmer at Hardings.

The beach is never too crowded. The other vacationers are always very nice and my kids love to catch crabs and minnows there.

This is a great beach because it is a long pennisula which makes it great for walking. It is also on Nantucket Sound it is ideal for swimming and has plenty of parking.

When you go to Hardings Beach park as far left in the lot as possible near the path that walks you to the lighthouse.

Hardings Beach is a favorite from my childhood. It had been years since I visited it. It was so nice to return. I loved walking out to Stage Harbor Lighthouse.

This beach is great for families. The waves are fun for the kids. There is a public restroom. An ice cream truck makes an appearance several times a day. If you're not up for a walk, there is always parking available or you can be dropped off to avoid the parking fee.
