This easy walk is in Wellfleet. Turn off Route 6 onto Pamet Point Road, next to the gas station that Edward Hopper painted. (Look for the sign for the Atwood Higgins House.) Bear left at the first Y you come to. Then take a right onto Bound Brook Island Road. Park at the Atwood-Higgins House, a National Seashore historic site, and walk about a mile on Coles Neck Road to a small sand parking area on your left; it overlooks dunes and vegetation. Follow the footpath there for less than a quarter of a mile; you’ll pass between two dunes and pop out onto the beach. Across Cape Cod Bay, Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown is visible on a clear day. My husband and I went on an 80-degree day, and we didn’t see one other person on the walk; the closest people on the beach were at least 100 yards away. Part of this route is actually a sand road used by three seasonal houses, although no cars passed us that day.
