Witness wild ponies running free on 16,720 hectares (41,320 acres) at Assateague Island National Seashore, a portion of Assateague Island run by the National Park Service. Stop in at the visitors center before crossing over into the park. Walk the shores of its famous white sand beaches, take a short hike, swim anywhere on the island, or even go fishing (Maryland fishing license required). While the island hosts a variety of birds, it is most well-known for its free-roaming, wild ponies. These Assateague Island wild ponies wander along the beaches near Chincoteague, Virginia, and Ocean City, Maryland. In addition to participating in recreational activities available on the Island, take a tour to see these majestic creatures in their natural habitat.
