About Harwich

Harwich has many strings to its idyllic beach holiday bow, but one of the most photographed is Wychmere Harbor filled with graceful yachts. This is one of the most photographed spots in all of Cape Cod. Harwich’s beaches are a close second, followed by the art galleries and great restaurants. Generally the best places to stay in Harwich are those with beach access as some beaches restrict parking to residents.

What Not To Miss

  • Stroll around the charming colourful aisles at Cape Cod Lavender Farm with numerous different types of lavender, it's certainly a gardeners paradise. There is also a shop where visitors can pick up some unique local produce including lavender jelly.
  • Unwind on the tranquil Red River Beach - although the beach has a rather small carpark, this ensures the beach stays quiet and peaceful.
  • Enjoy a taste of the local vintage at the First Crush Winery Cape Cod with tasting sessions available for visitors along with tours of the winery.
