Harding Beach

Boasting white, powdery sand, a pleasant climate, warm water, and breathtaking views, Cape Cod is a playground for beach lovers. All along the peninsula coastline you’ll find great spots to lay down your towel so you can settle in to soak up the sun and frolic in the waves. However, if you find yourself staying in Chatham or visiting for the day, Hardings Beach in Chatham is an excellent site to host your beach outing. Located in west Chatham, this is the go-to beach for many residents and visitors.

Why Choose Hardings Beach

Hardings Beach in Chatham MA is popular with people of all ages. It’s one of the town’s more spacious stretches of sand, extending for more than a mile, which means there’s plenty of room to play a game of Frisbee, bocce, or volleyball or build the ultimate sandcastle. There are also beautiful hiking trails that allow for a bit of exploration and more stunning scenery. Situated on the shore of Nantucket Sound, the calm, temperate water makes this the perfect place to go swimming and participate in water recreation like windsurfing. The idyllic setting is made all the more appealing with views of Stage Harbor Light, Oyster River, grass covered dunes, South Beach, and Monomoy Island. It’s also prime for bird watching.

There are three lifeguard stations to give you peace of mind, shower and restroom facilities, and different food options to indulge in. Because of its great location, roominess, and nearby amenities, Hardings Beach tends to get crowded, so it’s best to get there early and claim your space. Whether you come for the day, a few hours, or for a sunset stroll, this is one of the top attractions to provide the quintessential Cape Cod and Chatham experience.
