Point of Interest
With 66 miles of shoreline, Chatham is surrounded on three sides by water: Pleasant Bay is to the north, Nantucket Sound is to the south, and to the east lies the open Atlantic Ocean. Off Chatham’s beaches lies some of the most dangerous waters: it is said that half of the known wrecks on the entire Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coasts have occurred off the Outer Beach of Cape Cod, which stretches from Nauset Beach in Orleans to Chatham. And, as revealed in the 2011 Discovery Channel program Jaws Comes Home, the area’s burgeoning seal colonies have prompted a number of great white shark sightings in recent years.
