Our Top 10 Photo Worthy Spots on Cape Cod

Josie Cataldo | 7/12/2023 (updated 7/25/2023)

Pictures are the best way to capture memories of a visit to the Cape and Islands. Why not find the perfect spots to take them? We’ve selected a handful of locations that we consider to be "Instagrammable" on Cape Cod. Check out a few of our best shots below!

Gray's Beach

Grays Beach in Yarmouth features a quarter mile long boardwalk that stretches across a beautiful marsh.

The Provincetown Dunes

If you ever find yourself on Cape Cod, no matter what town you’re staying in, you should make it a priority to visit these surreal sandy structures. When you’re among the Provincetown Dunes, listen to the sweet sound of chirping birds, the soft lull of waves rocking gently in the distance, and the soft whisper of the dune grass as it sways gently in the summer breeze.

Nauset Beach

Nauset Beach in Orleans is a 10-mile stretch of soft, white sand and clear, sweeping waves make for a picture perfect location.

Pamet Harbor

Pamet Harbor in Truro is a great spot to view an amazing sunset. Depending on when you visit, the sun lines up perfectly with the boardwalk to create the most magical moment.

Pilgrim Monument

The Pilgrim Monument is one of the most iconic destinations of the Outer Cape. This 252 foot tall landmark commemorates the history of the Mayflower Pilgrims. The view is well worth the climb to the top!

Nobska Light

Nobska Light in Falmouth is a great place for a photo. Visitors can take a photo right in front of the lighthouse or go across the street and take one from the area overlooking the ocean.

Chatham Fish Pier

The Chatham Fish Pier is more than just a spot to grab fresh seafood. Visitors can walk along the pier and watch the fishermen offload their catch. You will also spot some curious seals hoping to get in on the action!

The Knob

The Knob is a hidden gem located in Falmouth. After taking a short walk through the woods, visitors find themselves at the small peninsula that offers breathtaking views of Buzzards Bay. A small bench sits centered on the clearing; sit back, relax, and soak in the serenity of the environment.

White Crest Beach

White Crest is among one of the breathtakingly beautiful beaches along Ocean View Drive in Wellfleet. With towering sand dunes, perfectly sculpted waves, and pillowy soft sand, this beach is a must see. The moment you hit "post," your messages will be flooded with friends asking "where is this?!"

Scargo Tower

The view from Scargo Tower is absolutely breathtaking. Once you make it to the top of the 30-foot tower, you're met with panoramic views of Scargo Lake.

Fort Hill

Fort Hill is somewhat of a hidden gem as it's subtly tucked off the highway and many people don't even know it's there. Fort Hill is a wonderful place to go for a walk and snap some incredible shots at one of the many overlook spots the walking trails lead you to.

Regardless of which Cape Cod destination you choose to visit, you’re sure to return home with beautiful photos and special memories. You may even return every year for more experiences and photos!
