This beach is best visited in the fall. There is limited parking and one must use a shuttle bus in the summer. However, in the fall the crowds are gone and there is ample parking. Coast Guard offers the best access to the beach as it does not have steps. Good for handicapped. We have had 3 beach fires there... More

This beach is just gorgeous, even in the fall. Seals were playing in the water. Could easily bike to the beach , even though there's a large parking area. Bathroom facilities are clean but only open during the season. The view is just magnificent.

Easily accessible by bike. Parking is probably more difficult in season. We went in Oct. and basically had the beach to ourselves. We even saw whales!

Many whales close to shore. No need for binoculars. They breached, slapped their tails, opened their mouths, etc. Very exciting! Also saw lots of seals all along the coast.

This beach is always in the top 10 of the world, but does get crowded in summer, no surprise. The farther you walk from the lifeguard station the less crowded it is, and still not wall to wall people like some beaches. Parking is limited on site, but you can take a shuttle bus from a parking lot off Nauset... More

Great place to view both the Atlantic Ocean and the marsh You can stop at the Visitor Center for a small museum, a short video, and even a gift shop then take the short trip to the beach

Gorgeous beach to visit in autumn when parking in not a problem. Great for bird watchers like me and whale watching from the shore. Beautiful buildings and boardwalk back into the marsh.

Fabulous views on a perfectly clear October day! Too cold to dip your toes but worth the visit. Not far from National Seashore.

Beautiful beach, with amazing views for miles. The beach is busy, but if you walk down far enough you can get away from the crowds. Great place to spend the day
