Fodor's Review

Adjacent to Coast Guard Beach, this long, sandy beach is backed by tall dunes, frilly grasses, and heathland. The trail to the Three Sisters lighthouses takes you through a pitch-pine forest. Parking here fills up very quickly in summer; plan to arrive early or you may have to go elsewhere. Nauset charges $15 per car, but you can buy an annual pass for $45 (valid for all six Cape Cod National Seashore beaches). Amenities: lifeguards; parking (fee); showers; toilets. Best for: sunrise; surfing; swimming; walking.
