“Very romantic in the sunrise or set but also a good place to see the seals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This beach is a great place to stay all day and walk up and down. Looking at seals and watching sunset or sunrise. The beach has a lot of twist and turns and it is queit enjoyable! Take a romantic stroll and spot the seals. There is places so you feel like you have a private beach but there is a public beach there as well.

“Picturesque”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

The lighthouse is not one of the more stylish I have seen, but is active and essential for that part of the coast. It sits across from a very nice, wide beach with nice views and the opportunity to get in a good walk. We saw a colony of seals on the sandbar across from the beach and met some nice families with whom we had a pleasant, casual conversation about the area and things to see. Be sure to explore the village of Chatham which is quaint and enjoyable.

“Lovely views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

It was a very cold day when we went to the Lighthouse, but it was a lovely view and the beach is spacious. If it had been warmer we might have walked for quite a while. It's definitely worth spending some time there if you're beach-inclined, and the lighthouse is picturesque.

“Great place to watch the sun rise.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

A great way to start the day is a walk along Shore Road to Chatham Lighthouse to watch the sun rise ... or really anytime, beautiful beach across the street.

“Beautiful wide beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Beautiful wide beach, great for walking. Dangerous currents, so not good for swimming. Parking restricted to 30 minutes. May be nice to take bikes in the summer.
