Exploring Cape Cod: Nauset Marsh

Coast Guard Beach

One of the first places we explored during our time in Cape Cod (Dec 28- Jan 2) was Nauset Marsh in Eastham, MA. It was a beautiful day but extremely cold and breezy (a rough combo for a California girl like me).

I was a trooper with my many layers of sweaters and jackets. We followed the trails which in the summertime makes a great bike path. It takes you though the woods (ultimately leading to a visitors center) and along the marsh. It’s fun doing in the winter time because the colors are so unique. The yellows, golds, muted browns and deep reds make for some fun photography, especially compared to the bright colorful photos I’m used to taking in LA.

The photo below was taken from the parking lot of Coast Guard Beach, which is where you would park to explore the bike path and trails along Nauset Marsh. This is a great place to take someone who has trouble walking (maybe a 93 year old Grandma perhaps?). They have several benches along the parking lot, so even sitting you can enjoy a great view and gorgeous sunset.

After the sun began to set and our exploration time was nearing an end, we continued on to Nauset Light (see the picture below). It was only a quick drive-by, but you might as well if you made it all the way out to Nauset Marsh.

Just around the corner from Nauset Light are three lighthouses called The Three Sisters. Stop and take a peek as you’re leaving Nauset Light. Click the link to learn the history of these three lighthouses (all missing their top lights).
