You may have trouble finding the Sconset Bluff Walk due to all the sea grass and natural erosion in the area, but when you see it, you’ll know it.

A tranquil getaway in itself, the sleepy beach town of Siasconset offers its own host of quiet, charming restaurants and cafes, including The Chanticleer and Sconset Cafe.
