The idea is to walk down the beach itself, not in the ecologically delicate dunes. It’s a glorious walk – no worry about ticks because the sand is bare of brush, and the sky opens above you, the Atlantic Ocean in front of you. Overhead, and on the sands, seabirds cry out and search for food. Make this a brisk eight-mile walk by trekking to the south end of the island and back, or else wander inland on a boardwalk and focus on the more sheltered sections, where flocks of migrating birds murmur, and raptors like hawks and an occasional osprey sail above you.

There are also half a dozen short trails established in the National Seashore; a good map of these can be purchased (although it’s pricey at $9) at the Province Lands Visitor Center at the far tip of the Cape.

Several interesting short trails also connect to the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham. And in the middle of the Cape, not on the ocean, is Nickerson State Park, with longer hikes possible.

People on personal watercraft and on waterskis are also required to wear their PFDs; motorboats may simply carry one for each person. Fishing is well appreciated, and with more than 2,800 lakes, ponds, and reservoirs, there’s lots of activity. Stream fishing is also popular, whether in the small mountain streams or the mighty Connecticut and Merrimack rivers. The northern section of the Farmington River, in western Connecticut, is an exceptional fly-fishing region. You’ll need a license, which can be bought at town or city halls.
