It is very positive that the entire beach area is not paved with hotels, but is very natural. Accommodation is available in motels along the main road and in the few small towns. The Cape Cod National Seashore Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham is a place to check out. The warnings about white sharks in this area are somewhat irritating. Is this really recommended for a beach holiday?
