My first visit to the Cape and was able to spend in this beautiful area. So accessible, beautiful lighthouse, and dunes like I did not know existed in the Northeast.

Possibly the most beautiful beach I've ever seen!! Visited on a misty, cold, overcast day so I didn't even get to enjoy it.

Is the handicap accessible blue mat put out during this time in the spring? If so can someone tell me where it is located and how I can get there/where to drive in the parking lots or roads. We have never been before Thank you!

I think it is a bit early for the blue mat. It would probably be better to wait until May 15 or so. There are two places I think the mat may be placed, one is behind the toilets and changing building where there is a... More
