Coast Guard Beach and Nauset Light Beach, off Ocean View Drive, Eastham. Connected to outlying parking lots by a free shuttle, these pristine National Seashore beaches have lifeguards and rest rooms.
Marconi Beach, off Marconi Beach Road in South Wellfleet. The bluffs are so high at this National Seashore property that the beach lies in shadows by late afternoon. There are rest rooms.
Head of the Meadow Beach, off Head of the Meadow Road, Truro. Among the more remote National Seashore beaches, this spot (equipped with rest rooms) is known for its excellent surf. Because beachgoers don't have to traverse steep dunes to get to the beach, Head of the Meadow is easier to access than the other beaches for the elderly or handicapped.
Race Point Beach and Herring Cove Beach, off Route 6, Provincetown. Race Point has rough surf; it's a good place to watch spectacular sunsets, and you might even spot a whale on its way to Stellwagen Bank, a breeding ground. Herring Cove, with much calmer waters, is popular with same-sex couples.
