So awesome to walk down this shoreline- breathtaking! When we were at this national park, there were artists throughout painting the scenery. It was a nice perk to see nature through their eyes.

Visitors center with park staff very knowledgeable and friendly. Views of seashore very impressive. Photo opportunities galore. A must tour of the of the seashore. Dunes tours also available. Great for relaxing, walking and... More

its a national park - that's the vibe. it's grand and majestic. the water is green (and so cold! bracing) and the sky is the clearest most open blue. there are huge dunes sweeping behind you and simple, bleached wooden facilities. even the drive in through the scrub and pine trees is american classic. love this beach.

Not much better than being at the CCNS beaches. The pristine dunes are enormous and serve as a beautiful backdrop to a day on the water. Beaches are clean with the water a bit chill (for my liking). Don't pass up the opportunity to spend some time here.

Great beaches, pay 1 fee and visit all 6 beaches in same day. Great biking routes, easy access to and from, panoramic views that everyone must see at least 1x.

What a beauty. Sand, Dunes and Ocean as far as you can see. Just sitting at the beach we saw whales and seals. So beautiful and peaceful. Not overcrowded. On selected parts there are lifeguards. While we were there they had Great White Sharks sighted and some beaches closed. But there were plenty of beaches to choose from which were... More

Cool light breezes, bright but not hot sunlight, contented people walking, biking, hiking, sunning...there are sun-dappled trails, marshes, beaches, a Visitors' Center that's airy and fun for kids. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better way to spend a morning, afternoon or an entire day of your stay at the Cape. Best of all, you stand a 0% chance of... More

We enjoyed our visit on a rainy day to the CCNS. The visitor center provided great background on the natural splendor and history of the area. In addition to the seashore, be sure to check out the other trails hikes away from the beach including the Nauset Marsh, Atlantic White Cedar Swap Trail and Marconi site to name just a... More

The secret to Cape Cod is to enjoy the ride. Forget the fast lane.. slow down and smell the flowers! Quaint villages on 6A make the difference.. just watch out for runners, bikers and dog lovers.
