Cape Cod is world renowned for their beaches. With over 600 miles of gorgeous sandy coastline, you are always within an easy walk, bike, or drive of a beautiful beach. What's more, the beaches are both abundant and diverse in nature: from the calm, sandy flats of Cape Cod Bay to the more exciting surf of the National Seashore which faces the Atlantic ocean.

Luckily Harwich offers out-of-town guests the opportunity to purchase a guest beach parking sticker. Make sure you get this a few weeks in advance so you can access all the beaches. Bank St. Beach has limited parking so plan to arrive early - it's a beautiful beach.

We found Marconi while looking for good spots for our dog. As part of the National Seashore, Marconi is pet-friendly, year-round. It features 100-foot tall sand dunes and unspoiled coastline. Beyond the lifeguard areas, the beach is very quiet; I was able to walk the 2.5 miles south to Nauset Lighthouse without seeing anyone. If you extend this walk, you eventually reach Coast Guard Beach, which is also part of the National Seashore and among the highest-rated beaches in the country. CG Beach is a bit more crowded than Marconi, but still retains an rustic quality similiar to all the beaches within this stretch of the outer cape.

We also loved Chapin Beach, another dog-friendly spot located in Dennis. You can walk a good half-mile out from the coast during low tide. We could see seals less than 100 feet away from us. Also a great spot to watch sunsets.
