“The view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

On certain days they have tours through the lighthouse. Much history about the lighthouse. It is also an active US Coast Guard Station. Nice place to visit.

“Very romantic in the sunrise or set but also a good place to see the seals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
