We loved Campground Beach and went there every day but the large colonies of seals made our trip to Coast Guard Beach a special experience.

One of our favorite beaches is Coast Guard Beach in Eastham. This beach is simply beautiful, the waves are great, and during low tide the sand bars and tidal pools make for great exploring. The shoreline has very fine sand, little to no rocks/seaweed, and is fully staffed with lifeguards, and the trams run throughout the day for easy access to/from the beach.

We chose not to get a Brewster beach pass and used the national seashore instead. This beach is quite beautiful and the shuttle is easy to use.

I love the walk to the water at this beach and the grand, elevated staircase. The view of the light house is awesome. Great sand bars at low tide too. We saw lots of seals and and surfers in the early evening. Sunrise walks are lovely too. Parking is free early in morning and early evening.

We like the ocean for the waves, dunes and seals; the ponds for their sparkling, clear, refreshing water and the bay beaches for the sea critters, warmer and gentler soft water and beautiful sea grasses and kayaking...

We love this beach for so many reasons. Sand bars make it a great place for boogie boarding, it is clean, not nearly as rocky as its neighbor Nauset Light, and it is a great place to beach comb and check out the local seals. Since it is part of a National Park, it is protected from commercial development.

Have a beach fire at night on the beach--its amazing! (permit required from the national seashore a few days in advance--but its well worth the trouble!)

The Coast Guard Beach in Eastham was beautiful with the dunes and wide beach. Just great for sunning or playing in the water.

I LOVE this place. Even bundled up against the cold wind, I was in heaven. I even wrote a poem about the experience later. Miles of white curvy beach, high tide swells of surfer dream waves, and sun...walking...gulls....smiling visitors. To me this was God saying "all is well, be refreshed and renewed!"

We visited while a strong storm passed well off shore producing 10 foot surf. There were many surfers drawn to the beach as well as wake boarders. We spent hours watching them try to catch the perfect wave! It was a fairly easy bike ride away [Property ID 23848].

We like Coast Guard beach because, at low tide, you can see hundreds of seals out on the sand bar.

This oceanside beach makes a nice change from the bay, and is a quick drive up 6A from the cottage [Property ID 6632].

A great Cape Ocean beach. But they all seem great; the advantage of this one is that there is adequate parking, and we can bike there from Brewster.

We hiked from the Visitor's center down to Coast Guard Beach, a little over a mile. It was a beautiful walk. The beach itself was not crowded and very picturesque. Just what you expect to see in New England!

If you have someone in your party who is 62, buy a lifetime parking pass for the National Seashore. Best deal going! This beautiful beach had great amenities, big surf and a variety of wildlife.
