Merkel Beach

Snow Inn Rd, Harwich Port, MA 02646
A sign sits at the entrance to Merkel Beach in Harwich, Cape Cod.

Located across the street from the ritzy Wychmere Beach Club, you’d probably never notice the entrance to Merkel Beach if not for the small hand painted sign. There’s no parking available, so either walk or plan a drop off. The lack of parking and semi-secretive location make Merkel Beach ideal for visitors looking to avoid the crowds.
