Beautiful area, the beach its self is accessed by a long series of steps. It is well worth the time getting to the bottom but if your like me (older and a bit out of shape) it may take a bit.

Gorgeous as usual. March 9, 2019 was my first visit with snow on the ground. Went to the Provinceland Visitors, Center for some spectacular views.

The National Seashore is looking at the ocean in Cape Cod not the Bay. The waves are great. We were here off season so no crowds. I can image it is very crowded in season. There appears to be lots to do. View was impressive.

The National Seashore wasn't somewhere we had heard of and saw it on signs when we were on the bike trail so decided to make a detour. It is beautiful, clean, untouched coastline.. breathtaking.

One of the best places to go on the Cape. Off season is extra special without the crowds! The beach is great to walk in the winter. You really feel the power of nature this time of year!

Cape Cod National Seashore is gorgeous in the winter. Parking is free. The beach is free—free of people. Enjoy walking the beach, seal watching and a lone passionate surfer in a wet suit—now that is dedication. Don’t forget to stop at Doane Rock and take...More

An entrance fee to what? A beach? Most beaches stop charging after Labor Day, especially if it is a state beach.

Yes and No! Allowed only in limited areas, with variety of rules. Avoid areas with seals to prevent pet from catching the distemper virus.
