The Best Sunsets on the Cape

After many years of living and working on the Cape guiding guests around our waterways, we’ve seen pretty much every nook and cranny. There is an incredible amount of natural beauty on Cape Cod, but not much can compare to a magical seaside sunset. RideAway Adventures specializes in sunsets and we’re here to point you in the right direction to find that perfect view!

Our Favorite Spots

Popponesset/Ockway Bay – We may be a little biased but a Sunset over Ockway and Popponesset Bay while calmly floating on your kayak or board is an experience unmatched. Watching the colors change, feeling the water below you and hearing nothing but nature surrounding you is something every Cape Cod local, visitor or day tripper should experience.

The Cape Cod Canal Buzzards Bay – The canal is an engineering feat that acts as the gateway to Cape Cod but also doubles as a beautiful bike path and birdwatching mecca. As you ride the bike path in a south west direction the sun begins to put on a show right in front of you over Buzzards Bay. As you reach the end of the bike path you are rewarded with a clear view of an amazing sunset and bursting colors among summer skies. 

The Knob – This Cape Cod staple in Falmouth is a spot that no one can deny is a sunset lover’s dream come true. A short detour by bike off the shining sea bike path gets you to this magical spot. After about a ten minute hike you’ll be looking at nothing but an endless horizon where the sun slowly disappears creating a natural light show that will have you applauding as it finishes.
