It is within walking distance from where we stay [Vacation Rental ID 7741] and the walk is beautiful. You get to see ocean, sand dunes and marshes.

The new snack shack is amazing! Easy walk out on to the beach with gorgeous views.

We frequent all the National Seashore Beaches. This was our favorite with our dogs as you could walk further along where not many other people were. Also-there is a smaller parking lot to the right that fills up early, but you can find spots around 1pm. This is perfect for some alone time at the beach!

Herring Cove is known for the beautiful sunsets at night. The water is calm and clean, beach is spotless. Brand new facilities built in 2013 with inside and outside showers, restrooms and changing facilities. The food stand is managed by Far Land market. They are even serving dinner outside now with live music on certain nights outside.

This long beautiful beach has something for everyone. Great for long walks and searching for rocks and sea glass. My fav part is Hatches Harbor which is to the right of the parking lots and next to the bike path. The sand bar that forms and tthe little river that runs through it is awesome for tubing and causal swimming. It's a little slice of heaven!

No stairs - easy access and a snack bar and rest rooms! Water was clear and not too cold - beautiful!

You can have a campfire in the evening, and know you are at the very tip of the Cape for sunset. Saw several seals in the evening as well.
