Nauset Beach Professional Review and Guide

"One of New England’s most popular summertime destinations, Nauset Beach each year attracts thousands of saltwater-loving vacationers, swimmers, sunbathers, and surfers to its 7.0 miles of sand and dune, upland and salt marsh.

Nauset is a barrier beach, running parallel to the mainland coasts of Orleans and Chatham and protecting them from the Atlantic Ocean. (Though part of the Cape Cod National Seashore, the beach is co-managed by two towns.) Pleasant Bay spreads between the beach and the mainland, gradually narrowing into Little Pleasant Bay, and farther north, the marshes of Pochet (pronounced “PO-chee”) and snaking tidal creeks."
