Cape Cod Holidays

Holidays in Cape Cod offer something special. With a unique old-school charm, if you’re looking for a laid-back, quiet, beach holiday away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Cape Cod is the retreat for you. 

Along with many remote beaches, you can discover picturesque lighthouses, historic towns, tiny fishing villages and delightful seaside cottages as you explore all that Cape Cod has to offer. The quaint seaside town of Provincetown, located on the northern tip of Cape Cod, is a premier summer destination and a must-visit spot. 

While the year round population is under 3,000, the warmer months welcome crowds as high as 60,000, which says a lot about the summer atmosphere of the town. The small coastal community is best known for its lovely sandy beaches, pretty harbour and thriving artistic community. It’s also renowned as a thriving summer vacation spot for the USAs LGBT+ community.

The quiet beaches of Cape Cod

The real draw of Cape Cod holidays is the abundance of sandy, untouched beaches. The U-shaped peninsula of Cape Cod that protrudes from the Massachusetts coast is bordered with 400 miles of remote beaches. The shoreline is also scattered with quaint postcard-perfect lighthouses. 

On the Cape Cod National Seashore, you can discover 40 miles of sprawling coastline speckled with empty beaches, craggy cliffs, roaring ocean waves, and tranquil freshwater ponds.

Visit between mid-April to the end of October to observe a host of whale species cruising the waters during the summer months to feed. Expect to spot the likes of humpbacks, finbacks, minkes and the Atlantic white-sided dolphin coasting through their natural habitat. Pair this with a city break to New York or Boston, or book one of our spectacular New England tours. Speak to our Destination Specialists today to plan your bespoke Cape Cod vacation.
