Enjoy the pristine landscape and tranquil beaches of Cape Cod National Seashore, where you can observe the ocean from the lighthouse or the sandy dunes. Many visitors to the area come for the chance to see whales in their natural habitat, while groups of seals frolick just off shore most of the time.

The park complex contains an info booth with knowledgeable and friendly staff, a gift store, and an observation deck overlooking the sea.
