1. Goose Pond
Off of Queen Anne Rd, Chatham, MA
Assuming you prefer to scissor-stroke in seclusion and/or aren't quite ready for everyone at the beach to nod approvingly at your Borat speedo, this relatively secret, wooded, kettle hole pond on the Cape -- whose entrance can be "difficult to spot" -- rocks warm transparent water and, like Kate Upton on an SI swimsuit shoot, a sandy bottom. The best part: if you get tired of swimming, you can break out your old fishing pole. That's not even a euphemism for anything, 'cause, really, the pond is stocked… with fish.
