It’s not just about the ocean on Cape Cod! There are over 360 fabulous clear ponds to swim, fish and kayak in. Most freshwater ponds on Cape Cod are kettle ponds, which means they were formed by melting ice blocks as the glaciers retreated, around 18,000 years ago. The ponds have remarkable clarity because the soil is primarily sand and granite. If you want to have an incredible vacation consider a rental on one of these refreshing swimming holes. Sandy beaches, less crowds, and the opportunity to explore the many trails that line the ponds make for an unforgettable stay.
