Coast Guard Beach, Eastham

(4.6/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
At Coast Guard Beach, watch shorebirds such as plovers and terns nesting in mudflats during the warmer months, and spot harbor seals in the winter. From the sandy strand, walk down the pathway and cross the bicycle trail bridge to get to the salt marsh. In the mating season at low tide, observe the seals "hauling out" onto the marsh. Ask a park ranger to tell you more about their mating habits. Amenities include limited parking, seasonal restrooms, and a wheelchair-accessible ramp.

  • This is the most pleasant walk. Waves, surfers, bright skies. It just doesn't get any better. This is the serenity walk even during the winter.
