Nauset Light Goes Au Naturel

Nauset Light Beach has stepped back in time to when there were no stairs to the beach. In the past few years the National Seashore beaches in Eastham have been the hardest hit by erosion from storms. In 2015 eighteen feet of sandy bluff was lost from Nauset Light Beach and an additional ten feet was lost in 2016.  Instead of continually replacing the tall wooden staircase to the beach that wash away every winter, the decision was made to remove the stairs and create a walking path similar to the one at neighboring Coast Guard Beach. In October of 2017 the bathhouse, restrooms, and stairs were demolished and a winding sloping path the length of two football fields began. The bathhouse and restrooms will eventually be rebuilt but for now Nauset Light Beach is back to nature.

Take a walk this summer down the new path to Nauset Light Beach, Eastham, MA and enjoy the splendor of the constantly changing landscape of Cape Cod’s National Seashore.
