  • This national seashore is located on an island in the Atlantic Ocean. The 36,415 acre island is only accessible by boat.

  • A lot of interesting history took place on this island. In fact, this island was controlled by the British during the war of 1812.

  • The national seashore features beaches, dunes, marshes and lakes plus a 9,886 acre wilderness area.

  • The national park service restricts access to less than 300 people on the island at a time but you are allowed to camp in one of two campgrounds open to the public.

  • With no cars allowed on the ferry, you'll have to explore this beautiful island by foot or bicycle.
