While sunsets tend to get all the attention, there is something to be said about the simple beauty of a sunrise, watching the cold, dark night give way to the gray of dawn and then erupt into a dazzling display of the days color. Whether you are a morning person or not, it is imperative to catch at least one gorgeous sunrise at some point in your life. And since the Cape faces east (the sun rises in the east), the views tend to be quite spectacular. Here are the best places to catch the sunrise on Cape Cod!
The beaches listed here are all ocean beaches that directly face east, but that doesn't mean that other beaches on the Cape don't have sunrises to appreciate. Find your favorite!
