“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

This is a wonderful place to hike, run, stroll, or take children. It is an easy and breezy walk with marvelous views and few bugs! Lookout points make it easy to bird watch, and there are several shoreline accesses to explore or fish. Looking forward to going back!

“The best place in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Sachuest has the best trail that loops around the ocean then a quieter side if you go the whole way. I've seen Minks here, deer, fox, gold finch, osprey, rabbits, snakes, hawks, etc. TONS of wildlife, great views and really nice volunteers that are very knowledgeable inside the building,

“Natural beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

I live here and am very fortunate to be able to visit Sachuest Point often!! It always has something relaxing to offer visitors of any age! I walk trails with friends while we listen for , and try to name certain birds. I've explored the trails, coast, and wildlife on my own, while shooting photos for myself, and for their yearly contest. I've had peaceful quiet moments on the small sandy beach..just throwing rocks in the water with my 3yr old granddaughter. ..and I've just stood and stared at the amazing ocean all around me and the beautiful sunsets. Sachuest point has a fantastic visitor's center with natural wildlife on display, and educational activities and information about the refuge and it's mission. lbella3582
