Gorgeous November weather for a walk on the beach. Pristine and uncrowded. Numerous seal sighting ... but no sharks.

A great beach for sun bathing, fishing, hiking and ocean viewing, great waves for surfing. A bath house, changing space and well maintained.

The lighthouse wasn't open when we visited so we had a quick look. It's a well-kept property in a nice setting.

A very popular beach especially on a day you don't have to pay. Plenty of surfers with decent waves and quite a few seals playing as well . It was quite breezy so a few kite flyers were having fun. Miles of beach, rolling surf,...More

We were there on a windy and chilly afternoon in late Sept., but we walked the beach and lighthouse area for a little while. A nice stop on our tour of the Cape.

My favorite beach. The lighthouse, the stairs, replacing the stairs almost every year. Soon they will have to move the restrooms, and then the lighthouse (again). Enjoy it while you can. And notice the houses on the bluff, (toward Wellfleet), before they too disappear.

It was misty the day we were here, and if you want to walk the beach you need to me there at low tide. The mist made it rather lovely with the sun coming through. Big waves perfect for body boarding and we saw seals...More

The park district has changed this from time to time. As it stands right now, I don't believe if they are. However, you can call the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham, MA (508) 255-3421 or the Marconi Site Ranger Station... More
