Cape Cod National Seashore

Two beaches on the Cape Cod National Seashore will not have lifeguard protection this summer, and money isn’t the issue.

Visitors to the Cape Cod National Seashore this summer will likely notice changes at some of the beaches. At Nauset Light in Eastham, there is now a long path down to the beach, instead of a staircase. And at Marconi in Wellfleet, there’s a brand new staircase for the second year in a row.

Both beaches seem to be hotspots for erosion right now. And the Seashore is trying to adapt.
