Take a Walk Down the Beach
There are several beaches in Harwich, but Red River Beach is one of the most popular. The beach is made of soft sand that runs into the calm waters of the Nantucket Sound. There are also jetties along the edges of the beach and you will often see seals laying out on the rocks.
There is a parking lot near the beach, so you can pack a picnic and bring chairs if you want to spend the day. Parking passes for the beach cost $20 for the day and can be purchased at the city hall. Taking a walk down the beach is definitely one of the best things to do this weekend in Cape Cod for couples, and an over all great activity for your New England honeymoon.
Take a Cruise to Monomoy Island
Monomoy Island is a nature preserve located just off the shore of Chatham. You can get on a boat to the island from Harwich Port. Monomoy Island Excursions offers daily seal cruises that leave from Harwich Port. The cruise will take you to secluded lagoons where the seals like to gather. You will sometimes see thousands of gray seals swimming in the waters and laying on the shore of the lagoon. The cruise also provides ample opportunities for seabird watching and you will occasionally see the shadow of a Great White Shark stalking the seals.
End Your Day with a Romantic Dinner
After a long day of exploring Harwich both on land and from the ocean, you will be ready for a relaxing, romantic dinner. There are several options for a romantic dinner in downtown Harwich where you will find a variety of restaurants serving everything from local seafood to French food and Italian food. Viera is one of the Harwich’s most popular restaurants. They are known for their innovative dishes which use fresh seafood, local and seasonal ingredients.
