Beautiful dunes. Shells for the kids to collect. Fishing for my husband. Sun for me.

Herring Cove is known for the beautiful sunsets at night. The water is calm and clean, beach is spotless. Brand new facilities built in 2013 with inside and outside showers, restrooms and changing facilities. The food stand is managed by Far Land market. They are even serving dinner outside now with live music on certain nights outside.

This long beautiful beach has something for everyone. Great for long walks and searching for rocks and sea glass. My fav part is Hatches Harbor which is to the right of the parking lots and next to the bike path. The sand bar that forms and tthe little river that runs through it is awesome for tubing and causal swimming. It's a little slice of heaven!

No stairs - easy access and a snack bar and rest rooms! Water was clear and not too cold - beautiful!

You can have a campfire in the evening, and know you are at the very tip of the Cape for sunset. Saw several seals in the evening as well.
