We found this beach by accident. But, I acted as if this was planned and took advantage of the beach sunset. A nice brisk walk to burn some dinner calories and I'm a hero ! Take a selfie with the lighthouse behind you.

Parking is close to the beach and the path to the beach has blue webbing over the sand, so the walk is easier for those with difficulties. It is also a gentle slope and there are wheelchairs for the sand with the large tires. There are showers and restrooms that are easily accessible. There are also lifeguards on the beach... More

As the parking is limited, park at the Visitor Center and walk 2 mi via the bike trail. You walk through pine forrest and after a while you can hear the sea. Use the shortcut after the bridge to end up at the parking. There are restrooms, showers etc. hang out on the beautiful beach watching the seals, birds and... More

Can be somewhat crowded in season (perhaps an understatement) but there is a lot of beach to go around. Parking can be dicey but there is a shuttle bus.

Saw seals and they tagged 2 sharks down the beach from where we were!! Folks were still able to swim. They have a special mat on top of the sand to help you walk down to the beach area. The restrooms were very clean.

Many people do not know how wonderful the Cape can be in September. In season most people are shuttled to the beach since parking lot at the beach is so small. Off season you might luck out and get a spot at the beach. No charge for parking off season during the week. The changing rooms and bathrooms were open.... More

Great beach - part of a string of beaches on National Seashore. Great sand, lots of room to spread out. Good facilities and support.
