As Patti Cage famously sang in 1956, “If you’re fond of sand dunes and salty air, quaint little villages here and there, you’re sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod”. Miss Cage’s lyrics still hold true to this day as Cape Cod holidays are seen as some of the best as far as beach going is concerned. With over 900 kilometres of coastline, over 60 km of which are on the famous Cape Cod National Seashore, there are more than 60 public beaches for sun lovers to explore.
The beaches of Cape Cod host a lot more than just sunbathing opportunities though. For those of us who like to add a bit of activity to our vacations, the expansive coastline is full of hiking and bicycle trails for ramblers, while the area’s 27 public golf courses are perfect for those who wish to add a spot of laid back sport to their relaxing holiday. If you feel the need to get some exercise out on the water itself, there are plenty of kayaking opportunities to be had up and down the coastline, while most beaches have a wide range of watersports and activities which can be signed up to.
