Being a landlubber from the plains, I really liked the beach. It was rugged and beautiful. They do a great job of not allowing littering. The sand is beautiful. Spending the day here would be very pleasant.

This is a great experience as all the beaches are different with their own personalities. Seals, crabs, fish, shells, stones, cliffs, dunes - the National Seashore has it all. There are trolleys to some beaches, great parking, accessibility, change rooms and bathrooms. Hop in the...More

Our family spent one day exploring the national seashore. What a beautiful place! Lots of pretty overlooks and historical sites. Gorgeous place!

I am dumbfounded every time I go here and see people swimming around in the water with their children when it is known that there are great white sharks in close proximity at any given moment. Am I missing something?

When visiting Cape Cod and interested in a great beach, our favorite is the beach at Cape Cod National Seashore; very clean, uncrowded, plenty of parking and we enjoyed watching seals playing in the waves just off shore.

Every beach here is more spectacular than the last, and there is so much shore that if you are willing to walk a bit you can always find enough space to feel like you have some privacy. The information centers have great rangers and guides,...More

It's a favorite on Cape Cod for good reason - the cliff-like dunes behind the beach provide a unique backdrop and counterpoint to the ocean. It's amazingly beautiful. The walk down to the beach is down a long a pretty neat staircase, so definitely not...More

Definitely Nauset! Expect Cold water but it rules. I've lived here all my life Nauset is special for sure. Breakfast on the beach with dear friends is a memory tucked away in my heart forever.
