Schoolhouse Pond is small with a roped-off swim area. It’s located off Schoolhouse Pond Road off of Sam Ryder Road in Chatham, MA. This beach is shady and calm. Nearby are Goose Pond and the smaller Ryder’s Pond.
Despite its small size, it’s very popular. Before visiting the Schoolhouse Pond beach, be aware that no flotation devices are allowed at this spot. Parking is limited here, so you may want to walk or seek alternate transportation.
Across the street is a conservation area known as the Triangle, which is a great walking trail and recreation area. It’s worth visiting both of these spots while you’re here.
