We are allowed to bring our dog to these beautiful beaches, which made it extra special. $45 parking permit for the season to $15 per day. All 6 have showers and bathrooms. Herring cove has a snack bar and is great if you want to park and plop, no walking.

High dunes, spectacular beaches, pounding surf, varied wildlife and points of interest drew us to explore the Cape Cod National Seashore. It did not disappoint. We were extremely fortunate to avoid traffic with mid-week travel. A ranger told us to go to the Marconi Beach as there was a long wait to park at the Nauset Light Beach. Good advice... More

The beaches are gorgeous, but it is New England so the water is COLD. That being said, we love our national parks and spent three days exploring this park. Arriving about 10:30 AM we had no trouble with parking at Coast Guard Beach, Eastham. But if you want to get the shuttle to the beach, arrive early to get a... More

The peacefulness, great walks and enjoying nature. We walked around the pond and then ventured on a trail down to the beach.

Amazing. The best beaches on the East Coast. The best birding, seal watching, hikes into parabolic dunes, seeing the Milky Way at night because it is actually dark here. There are no mini-golfs, waterparks, concession stands. On the outskirts, and driving to get here and in between, yes. But not in THE (capitalized for a reason!) National Seashore. Go at... More
