    Walking on water
    Ok there are a couple of issues: shark warning signs and rip currents…. That doesn’t stop me from coming back to this fabulous place. Enter the beach, make a right and keep walking and you’ll see what I mean: blue water and sand dunes with high and low tides that create shallow pools… it’s truly a magical place!

    Stunning Beach
    We had a great time here in July. You can't park at the top of the beach, parking is only for 30 minutes there. We parked around the corner which was great value and they provided transport to the beach which was cool. The beach was stunning, it was great seeing the Great White Shark signs. The sand was the best ever and the water was lovely. It was great for kids. Would highly recommend.

    A memorable experience at Chatham’s Lighthouse Beach
    This is an incredible end of the earth type if beach. There are seals playing and sunning just off the beach and the views are amazing. The Chatham blue water changes with the weather and time of day/year. For photographers there are never ending subjects to photograph. Be sure to visit the beach shack and leave a message in the book.

There is a lot of nice flat sand here with good access. There is ample free parking across the street from it. However, this is in a touristy area that can be very congested.

Fabulous beach! We spent 30 minutes or so just taking a walk before heading to our next stop. Yes, there are warning signs for sharks but they do live there

We've been coming to the Cape for 15 years. It never disappoints. This time we decided to try a new beach (Skaket, on the Bay side, is our go-to) so we tried Chatham Lighthouse Beach. Completely different experience! You're looking at the ocean, seals-maybe even sharks. This is the Powerful Part of the Cape for us. We'll be back!

We stayed at the Chatham Inn that was a short 5 min walk to the beach. I don't think there were more than 50 people on the beach and it was a picture perfect 80 degree day. If you want a quiet stretch of sand to read a book and enjoy the day...this is it.

Beautiful beach walking distance from our inn! Peaceful and uncrowded. Fun to watch the boats and some seals in the channel off the beach.

This was a wonderful beach for a long stroll or just sit and enjoy your day. Easy access and big enough that you wont see people if you walk far enough.

Clean water and sand with a lovely lighthouse. This beach is truly delightful and simply not to be missed when in Chatham.
