Located a short ways up the coast from Coast Guard, Nauset Light Beach consists of a broad, sandy beach that is contained by a steep sand cliff behind it. As with all beaches along this stretch of the coast the views down the beach of the dunes and water are breathtaking. A long, towering wooden stairway descends to the sands from the parking lot. This is a great spot for families and people of all ages, and is ideal for swimming, surfing, and body surfing. Lifeguards keep careful watch. A classic and historic lighthouse, Nauset Light, used to be located on the top of the cliff. Due to erosion it was moved about 300 feet further inland in 1996, and is adjacent to the parking lot entrance. Nauset Light Beach is part of the Cape Cod National Seashore.
Nauset Light Beach has a large lookout area in the parking lot, ideal for viewing in the scenery and taking pictures. Public restrooms and showers are also available. Daily fees to park are $10.
