Watch the sunset-Skaket Beach
A great place to watch the sunset and tides. You need a detailed Cape Cod map or instructions to find it. There is a bike trail going near-by. Once we went there on our bikes but going back to Harwich in the dark was a little adventure as we had no lights. Somehow we got back without any accidents. Watching the sunset and then riding for 1or 2 hours in the dark through fields and forests was a unique experience.

I spent a total of 8 months working in Harwich and Chatham in Massachusetts and I did a lot of travelling all over Cape Cod. One of my favourite places there was Skaket Beach. It's not too popular and kind of hard to find but it's a great place to watch the sunset (check out tips and travelogue).

Tidal pool and rocks. The Brewster Flats beaches are either a few feet or a kilometre wide depending on the tides. Here, a tidal pool fills in the beach as the tide moves up.
