A lush nature preserve with some nice trails to walk on. The highlight for me was happening upon a ranger who had her telescopic binoculars set up and was able to show me breaching humpback whales! Truly awesome!!

This is our go to destination every time we go to the Cape. The landscape is absolutely picturesque. There is convenient parking. The Rangers are always super knowledgeable and helpful in helping us find new amazing spots and things to see. A quick stop at the visitor's center may be useful to organize your walk/hike/bike ride... anything you want to... More

The weather was blustery so we had the beaches mostly to ourselves. Beautiful scenery, great beach-walking, shelling, and lots of seals playing in the water, which was really fun and exciting for us since we are from the Midwest!

We once again enjoyed Nauset Light Beach on the CC National Seashore. The parking was proximate -- and ours was even 'free' by showing our National Park Senior Pass. A month-old super-stairway wooden structure provided the 10 of us with access down the 50 foot drop from the bathhouse and parking lot level. The beach was clean and looooong, the... More

We had a windy, chilly day for our visit but that only proved helpful to us since the beach wasn't so crowded. My children enjoyed looking for beach glass and special rocks. We also had our first wild seal sighting!

If you are on the Cape and you miss this you have missed a lot. You can watch a movie which explains how the cape was formed and is still evolving. There is an excellent bookstore and most all the information you'll need is available from the staff. Parking, clean rest rooms and handicap access are all available. And it's... More
