This is a beautiful trip, particularly in late summer or early fall. At that time, shorebird viewing is at its prime, boat traffic diminishes, and the changing colors of the marsh add to Wellfleet’s already considerable beauty. For the Cape, the area is unusually quiet; the natural environment is aided substantially by the presence of the 1,000-acre Massachusetts Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary on the south side of Lieutenant Island. Attractions: Massachusetts Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary; salt marsh; bird-watching; sandy beach for picnicking, swimming.
