I visited Cape Cod National seashore in a windy winter day. I was impressed by the wildness of the view, the power of the waves and the extension of the sand. It's impressive how the local vegetation suddenly stops and, after a cliff of several meter there is this sand sweep. There was almost nobody, probably in summer the view... More

To have all this seashore, dunes and sky, waves and sand, marshes and chickadees! In January, the surf roars and the wind will turn you right around to scuttle back to shelter, but then the parking lot is EMPTY except for your car. No seals, but no sharks either.

Whale watching, sailing, swimming, relaxing, tanning, strolling, jogging. Cape Cod seashore is the place where you can do it all. But best of all you can be yourself because Cape Cod is the place where everyone is welcome. A summer without CC is no summer at all!

We visited in late November. The beach was basically deserted and it was nice and peaceful. It was a rainy day with a little fog. The views along the beach are great.

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.
