Eastham Cape Cod Beaches - Cape Cod National Seashore
The Atlantic Ocean is on the outer arm of Cape Cod and is the open ocean. This is part of the National Seashore. The water is colder, the surf rolls in and the ocean is majestic. There are miles of white sandy beaches and sand dunes the perfect spot for sunning, swimming, and surfing. Small children need to be closely tended in the surf, as it can be rough for the non-swimmer.
The Cape Cod National Seashore preserves and maintains the beaches, dunes, wild animals, and plant life along the Atlantic shore. Along the 27 miles on the outer coast of the Cape there are lighthouses, wonderful trails for the hikers, and lovely protected beaches. You can walk for miles along the sand, enjoying the occasional seal or whale, without seeing any development. The Atlantic Beaches include Nauset, Nauset Light, Marconi, and Cahoon Hollow, along with many others.
Parking is $10 per day, and a season pass is $30. Season passes can be purchased at the parking lots and are good at all National Seashore beaches.
