Best Place to Watch the Sunset on Cape Cod

Cape Cod Sunsets

Sure, there are many things to do and see around Cape Cod – but nothing is more special than seeing a spectacular Cape Cod sunset.

In our opinion, the best place to watch the sunset on Cape Cod is at Herring Cove within the Cape Cod National Seashore.

Romantic Herring Cove

Tucked just around the corner from Race Point on the Atlantic Ocean, Herring Cove is on the Cape Cod Bay side, with warmer, calmer waters for swimming.

Oddly enough, because of its position on the bay – facing west – Herring Cove is one of the few places on the east and north sides of Cape Cod where you can watch the sunset over the water. It’s also an ideal spot for watching dolphins, whales, and seal because they often pass through the area on their way to feed in the bay or to head back out into the Atlantic.

Biking At Herring Cove

The bike trail that winds through Cape Cod National Seashore’s Provincelands takes you right up to the parking lot at Herring Cove. From there you can leave your bike and have a swim or stroll on the beach.

Couples Vacations on Cape Cod

Cape Cod MA has always been a fantastic spot for an impromptu couples retreat. Book a room at Bayside Resort Hotel – rated #1 mid-cape resort – for romantic couples vacations on Cape Cod. Grab a bottle of wine… and head out to the beach to watch an amazing Cape Cod sunset.
