My wife and I took a lovely stroll along the beach for an entire afternoon. The beaches were clean, the air was crisp, and the water was spectacular. We've never had a bad time on the national seashore.

Visiting the National Seashore is a must when you are on the Cape. Even so it was still chilly but perfectly sunny on this early spring weekend, we were amazed by the scenery, beautiful dunes and crashing surf, fantastic place to relax and enjoy. A visit to the park's Salt Pond visitor center is also very recommendable.

If you are on the Cape you have to go to the National Seashore. The scenery is beyond belief. From the majestic dunes to the crashing surf after a big storm or seeing the surfers and seals riding the waves it is all incredible. If you are a senior be sure to get your free pass at the Saltwater Visitors... More

The National Seashore is a great place to visit for swimming, biking, bird watching, seals, and the possibility of spotting a Great White shark. There are several visitor centers where there are small museums showing films about the seashore.

This is the most relaxing place to be on a sunny day in June. Just me and the sun, sand, and water. I spent two to three hours just walking along the seashore enjoying the beautiful dunes, lighthouses. A great place to relax alone or with your family.

If you're on the Cape, be sure to take some time to see the National Seashore ... even in the Fall, it's worth the drive ... and there's no entry fee. Beautiful dunes, beaches, and vegetation, with picturesque lighthouses. Don't miss the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham, right off US6 ... very helpful staff, interesting museum, nice views, and... More

We are fortunate to have this pristine and breathtaking habitat preserved. Well worth the drive, the National Seashore is a series of magical ocean beaches stretched along the Atlantic side of Cape Cod. Swimming, surfing, bike/walking trails and wildlife observation are some of the highlights. Great place for families, solo travelers, and photographers. Even pets (off-season, of course).

I can't say enough. This is truly one of the most special places in the world. Go for a lighthouse tour and you won't be disappointed. Winter through Summer this is a beautiful place.

The dunes, the wind, the lighthouses, even the Cape Air flight in all conspire to make you feel you're in a special place favored by history and tradition.

Very nice drive and tour of a lighthouse. It's pretty standard, but we enjoyed being at a place we had heard so much about. (We actually went some years ago, so check before going and be sure the storms haven't changed things!)
