First off, it's not easy to find the Refuge which is down from the Lighthouse off Morris Island Road, Morris Island is the sight of some of the most expensive real estate on the Cape, so not easy to find intentionally. But once you pull into the very small parking area, you have the opportunity for a treat. This is the sign-in area for the Grey Seal tour, for which I suggest you make reservations. The Grey Seals are interesting local residents that you can only really see from the boat tour that takes you out to the Monomoy flats. The views from the boat are worth the trip alone and the seals are great to see. These are the same seals that are a prime food source for the Great White Sharks, And so, like last week, bring some excitement to the Cape as everyone wanted to go out and see the sharks. We declined this opportunity - seen Jaws too many times.
OK, so besides the seal watch trip, you can simply walk the trail from the Refuge and walk down the stairs to the beach, which only really exists at low tide. But I guarantee that it will be almost deserted and you can walk and walk along this beautiful rustic beach with gorgeous views all around you. This is not the beach you go to for swimming and hanging out. it's for hiking and enjoying the views. One of the best kept wild nature experiences on the Cape. I really wasn't sure I wanted to share this here, but everybody else has this place wrong.
