Cape Cod National Seashore

One of the most beautiful strands of beaches on the planet, Cape Cod National Seashore is a 40-mile stretch of untainted golden sand beaches, ponds, dunes and marshes on the Cape. Rated one of the Top 10 Beaches in America, the shore is filled with nature and biking trails, protected nesting areas and old lighthouses. Cape Cod National Seashore is a sanctuary for sailing, boating, swimming, windsurfing, biking, surfing, beach bumming, whale watching, and coastal adventure. Throughout the year, visitors can walk the jetty, take guided ranger tours, or bike through the windswept dunes.

  • What are the ‘Sensitive Areas’ of the Seashore?

    Unless marked by the park service, most of the National Seashore is open to visitors. However, some areas are sensitive by nature and are prohibited for exploration. These areas include the following: areas where protected species are nesting, areas that are fragile and may be degraded by frequent visitors, areas where unusual archaeological resources may be found or damaged by foot traffic.
  • What is Wellfleet pier?

    For access to the public beaches by vehicle, pick up your auto beach sticker at Wellfleet Pier. Bring proof of your auto registration, your rental property permit, and $60 for a week pass. While at the pier, you can rent a sailboat, play basketball and tennis, or enjoy a picnic of burgers, clams and ice cream from local vendors.
