This breathtaking stretch of barrier shoreline and adjacent upland marshes, forests and grasslands offers a protected habitat to dozens of species of wildlife, especially nesting waterfowl. Located on Chappaquiddick Island, it is reachable by boat or, at certain times and with the proper permits, over-sand vehicles. During summer, guided tours can be booked with a naturalist through the Islands Regional Office. The beach is open to everyone, but regulated by the Trustees of Reservations. Adult admission is USD3, children get in free and parking is USD3. No camping is permitted.
Best Modes of Transportation:
Notes: The ferry takes bikes and cars; you'll need one or the other to get out to the reservation. You'll also need a permit and a four-wheel drive vehicle to do more than walk on the beach.
Parking Availability: Limited
Notes: There is a small parking lot just before you reach Dike Bridge.
