Forest Beach is another one of Chatham's string of beaches along its southern border. Forest is quite sunny and open, with soft sand to caress those overworked feet. This three-quarter-mile beach is a popular spot with windsurfers and moonlight strollers. Seashell lovers will bask in the glory of Forest's many shells. It's adjacent to Pleasant Street beach.


Tips: 

This beach makes for a wonderful escape from the crowds and is also a convenient sunset or moonlight stroll for those living or renting nearby.
