Roughly 1.52 miles, the boardwalk is built above a marsh, hosting a variety of marine wildlife. With the ocean and marshland all in one location, it is one of the most scenic places on the Cape! The water beneath is shallow and clear, perfect for sightings. Very family friendly and an easy hike near a mellow beach. There is the Bass Hole Boardwalk, which is just a 0.50 mile hike out and back with an observation deck at the end. Did we mention it is one of the most popular sunset viewing locations?
We estimate around 28 min for the hike and just 12 min for the Bass Hole Boardwalk.
What to bring:
Especially during the warmer months, we recommend bringing bug spray, as there are a lot of mosquitos in the marshland. Bring a swimsuit if you plan to take a dip!
