Fun in the Sun

Start your day with yoga on the beach then take a leisurely walk to the adjacent Chatham Fish Pier. Or borrow one of our “fat tire” bikes specially designed for a bike ride in the sand along the shore. Numerous studies have shown that time spent near the water is good for us, with health benefits of the beach being reduced stress levels.
