Harwich Beach Neighborhoods
With 22 fresh water and salt water beaches, Harwich lives up to its billing as a premier beach town. Harwich is distinguished by a string of beaches along Nantucket Sound in Harwich Port to the South with shorelines that are only modestly developed.
Pleasant Bay in East Harwich also is home to a collection of charming beach neighborhoods. Beach neighborhoods typically range from homes located directly on the water to more modest options within a half mile. Bank Street Beach, Earle Road Beach and Red River Beach, with their long stretches of white sand and warmer waters are family favorites. Wychmere Harbor, one of Harwich's most photographed landmarks, boasts a collection of beachfront estates as do neighboring Saquatucket and Allen Harbors.
