Ok, it is a working wharf so it may not be on the must see list; but it does have some interesting shops and sites (both boats and the town) would be worthwhile to stroll along the wharf.

Great to take a walk, look at all the incoming boats and fishing trips coming back. Great benches to sit back and enjoy the scenery.

The pier which is usually packed and hopping during the summer was quite quiet when we visited in February. There were fishing boats docked at the pier and not much else. It's beautiful anytime of the year as you look out on to the Atlantic...More

We were there in late October so some of the shops had already closed for the season. But we enjoyed the lack of crowded areas and viewing the colourful fishing and pleasure boats. Of course, having a nice sunny day made it more enjoyable. It...More

I don't believe that there is swimming next to the wharf. You may have to go to the other side of the Cape for that. There are small beaches close by that you can sit and sun bath at.

Yes, located right beside the ferry going to Boston (very end of the pier, farthest away from the land). It was inexpensive, about $4-5 and they allow you to go in and out of your luggage.
