  • There is nothing like the views from Lighthouse Beach. Its a pretty crowded beach though. We don't go there for the water/beach... we go there for the views mostly! Beautiful1=!  more »
  • Location of the Coast Guard event detailed in The Finest Hours; the rescue boat is currently on view. Lovely seascape, perfect for a stroll or to take photos, see seals, gulls.  more »
  • Spectacular view we visit as often as we can and walk the beach. Great seal watching. I always hope to see a shark but no such luck. A must for every chatham visit.  more »
