HARWICH BEACHES: The Town of Harwich lies just west of the “elbow” of the Cape, south of the Town of Brewster and bordering Nantucket Sound. Harwich’s shore is buffered by the sound and offers three protected harbors. You’ll find sandy beaches, too, as well as picturesque cranberry bogs, a stunning “lake’s region,” historic homes, bike and hiking trails, and more scattered amongst the town’s seven villages.
