Access from the B&B across the street from the National Seashore allowed me to run the bike path and along the road paralleling the beach. It was great!

Great walk on the beach with no crowds, a little cold, but we bundled up. Easy parking right at the beach.

The Great Beach, visited by Henry David Thoreau, is right here. Nice chance to study beach changes, both longshore transport of sand, and coastal erosion. Nauset Marsh is lclose to the former Coast Guard Station. There is a path that leads to the bicycle trail bridge. Lots of shorebirds are on the flats in the summer and in the salt... More

Great beach, long walking beach. But in the summer you have to park at some distance and use the Park Service shuttle; they won't even let you drop someone off.

We are locals who got married on the beach in October, 2008. I have been coming here for 40+ years...the erosion has taken a lot away and the National Park shuttle service is a pain in the butt. But, a trip to Coast Guard is a great way to spend the day any time of year!

This beach is gorgeous! The tide pools are so beautiful and interesting to explore. We went after 5 (or was it 6? I can't remember) so we could park without a sticker (and I loved that the lot is reserved for locals only during the day). The sun was going down, and took a lots of pictures of the tide... More

I have been here previously and love this beach. Clean beach and great waves. Unable to access this time due to the government shutdown, since its part of the Cape Cod National Seashore.

We went to Coast Guard Beach while visiting Cape Cod. Absolutely beautiful. You can walk down the Beach to Nauset Beach and Lighthouse. The weather was great, The water was sparkling like diamonds and it is well worth taking the trip on the walking trail from Visitors Center down a tree lined,peaceful walking trail. Would recommend it. They say Summer... More
