Beautiful area to walk around and enjoy the view. The memorial is nicely done. There is beach access, Korean War Memorial, Chathum Lighthouse, and public restrooms.

It would be approximately a 25 minute drive from Brewster to Hyannis. This time of year would be an easy drive, not much tourist traffic as yet.
