This is a wonderful beach for the game of your choice - beach bocce (a local specialty), volleyball, Frisbee, Wiffleball, or just build a sand castle with the kids. Anywhere outside the marked swimming areas is the place to launch your sailboat or kayak. (Monomoy Island makes a great destination from this beach.) Large parking. Attendant on duty. Some small waves. Nice sand. Cute beach.
With plenty of room for all sorts of beach activities, Hardings Beach, is perfect for large groups and families looking to challenge each other in a variety of sports. The bright sand and spectacular view make for a pleasant day of tanning, boating or book reading. There's also a pleasant trail behind the beach, after the second parking lot, which leads to the Stage Harbor Lighthouse.
There's plenty of parking, and the dunes after the second parking lot can make for a great parking spot for your boat for the week or the season.
