“Great Beach”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

Nice beach this time of year. Not crowded and you can walk a fair distance without interruption. Great place to visit and spend an hour walking the beach.

“Great beach for walking...”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Harding's is long and mostly flat, with low dunes. The water is shallow, calmer, and warmer than Chatham's other beach-Lighthouse. There is also a marsh path behind the dunes that is more protected from the wind and offers views over the tidal marsh. You can walk all the way to the old Stage Harbor lighthouse by beach or trail. Huge parking lot(s)- great beach for kids.

“Great family spot.”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Good little beach with life guards and security. Keep an eye on the seaweed cleaning though to make sure you go on the right day to avoid being surrounded.

You will need to have a membership or pay for daily use.
