Merkel Beach Harwich
Tucked between Earle Road Beach and Red River Beach in Harwich Port, Merkel Beach offers sparkling sand and the gently breaking waves of Nantucket Sound. Situated near the elegant Wychmere Beach Club, Merkel Beach provides stunning views of the Harbor and is home to classic beach cottages and waterfront estates. Named for Dr. Merkel, a prominent doctor and member of the family who donated much of the Wychmere Harbor land to the town, Merkel Beach has a public portion as well as a private piece owned by the Wychmere Beach Club exclusively for members’ use.
Merkel Beach is located on Snow Inn Road in Harwich Port, south of Main Street (MA Rt 28) and directly west of Wychmere Harbor.
