I love visiting this site. Every time I come to the Cape, we visit this location. Each time, we see something new. The trails are beautiful and definitely offer something for everyone and all ages. The building is beautiful and packed with great info.

Wide open water, waves, and sand dunes make this an ideal photography spot. The beach covers miles, and in the off season, it's quiet. A beautiful spot to walk and take photos of the water and the dunes. (Parking is free in the off-season.)

The Cape Cod National Seashore is absolutely stunning. I love the majestic dunes that keep you from seeing civilization when you are down on the beach at Cahoon Hollow. This beach is such a peaceful spot and very relaxing. I grew up and spent most of my life on the east coast, but since moving to California, I have visited... More

We drove from Chatham to Provincetown, stopping at various points of interest of the Cape Cod National Seashore. The fall foliage and scenic views were spectacular along Fort Hill (lovely easy hiking here with views of swamp and tidal lands), Salt Pond Visitor Area, Highland Lighthouse, Province Lands Vistor center, Race Point Road and the amazing sand dunes. We collected... More

Being from Texas, I was surprised to see dunes covered in trees and brush. You can walk forever along the shore or enjoy the water. The national seashore incompasses many miles along the cape. There are places to stop and enjoy not just the beach but marshes and woodlands.

We were only able to spend a day diving up to Provincetown, making many stops along the way to walk to beaches and take pics of lighthouses. Being the off season in October, we didn't have to deal with crowds. We discovered there were Rail Trails for bikes. We would love to return with our bikes someday!

Visited later in the afternoon and saw about half dozen seals swimming close to the shore. Understand that there are many more later in the day just before sundown Had a very nice trip

Loved this part of the Cape so much- we went to several beaches and they were all wonderful. Walk the extra 15 minutes along the shore to get away from all of the people and you can feel like you have cape cod all to yourself.

There are films concerning the development of the Cape from the ice age and others of interest. Trails are in good condition and well marked.
