  • Great for families with children. It’s small but very nice. It has public restrooms n not far from town.  more »
  • A lot of reviews will say it's great for little kids - and it is, but my son's 11 and he loves going to the pond. Beautiful view, nice stretch of water that can get wavy. Is saltwater - I bet some...  more »
  • Awesome beach spot
  • Oyster Pond Beach is conveniently located near Chatham's Main Street. When I'm in Chatham I don't come here a whole lot, but I did kayak here a few times years back. I'd highly recommend coming here for that activity. This is also probably a good spot to take young kids since the water here is fairly mellow. This spot has real bathrooms which is a major plus, so many of the town's beaches have port-a-potties. Signs posted advise no dogs allowed on beach from 5/1-9/15, be careful with that, the town has some tyrants on duty that you may encounter if you break that rule. Just be careful on the beaches here with dogs in general, the town doesn't enforce laws the same way the National Seashore does on other parts of the Cape. My mom found out the hard way this summer! I also noticed that all watercraft on the beach must have a permit from the town's park department. If you stand on the beach and look to your right you will see a big house on the hill. It's rumored that it belongs to a former American Idol judge.
