My mom volunteers at the refuge, and I think it's a really wonderful treasure of Cape Cod. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking at any time of year. However, there isn't much parking, and it isn't really a beach for hanging out and relaxing with the family. There are also often horseflies, which are a huge pain. At high tide, there isn't much of beach at all, but the water is pretty shallow and usually warm. Just beware of the horseshoe crabs nestled in the sand.
