Discovering Cape Cod life in Yarmouth

Tread in the footsteps of sea dogs and sailors in Yarmouth, where timber-built boardwalks wiggle over the Cape Cod wetlands and old lighthouses peak above the bays. This is coastal MA in a nutshell; a noble and well-mannered dose of New England inns and historic maritime mansions, all crammed between secluded beachfronts on the Nantucket Sound and babbling creeks along the shores to the north. From pirate museums for the kids to manicured golf courses and romantic walks for the couples, Yarmouth vacation rentals have plenty right on their doorstep.


Your very own adventure in Yarmouth

As the sea sloshes along the sandy bays to the south and the boardwalks of the northern wetlands creak in the breeze, you can enjoy a whole host of outdoor activities in Yarmouth – think beachcombing, creek walking, river fishing, ocean fishing charters, kayaking, and jet skiing to name just a few. The Atlantic also beckons whale watchers looking for a glimpse of those great marine mammals, while guided tours on dry land promise to unravel tales of pirates and swashbucklers and seafaring captains.


Yarmouth comes to life in the summer

Like the rest of Cape Cod, Yarmouth really bursts into life for the summer months. Locals emerge onto the streets after the long, harsh winter, and oodles of visitors begin to flock down from major US cities like Boston to relax on the lovely beaches. To join them, be sure to search for your Yarmouth vacation rentals in the months between May and September. Going earlier in the year typically means finding the boardwalks more secluded. Going later could mean getting to see the beautiful coastal forests of New England changing color at the start of fall.

Natural features

Yarmouth poses between 2 coasts

Pretty little Yarmouth straddles both sides of the Cape Cod coastline. To the south, it spills down into Nantucket Sound, offering glimmering white-sand stretches like Seagull Beach and Kalmus Beach, all wide and backed by undulating dunes – this is the area many whale watching tours launch from. To the north, it's Cape Cod Bay that laps against the shores. There, the Bass Hole Boardwalk wiggles its way across wetlands and dancing pockets of seagrasses to Gray's Beach – head there in the evening for some seriously good sunsets.
