Sachuest Point affords a lovely walk on the side of the ocean and, most of the time, good bird viewing. This is a relatively small facility.

Love this refuge. The coastal views are breathtaking, the birdlife is prolific and there are several trails to enjoy. You can even fish from the rocks if you wish. Great place to get away from it all and commune with nature.

Took a walk around here at the suggestion of the Staff at the Cambri Resort. Free parking, and a great view. Took the 2 mile walk, and found it to be absolutely beautiful. Great use of taxpayer money.

Its open, check on visitors center hours, sure it would be rough going with all the snow, trails aren't cleared. But some good viewing if you're up to it. Skis or snow shoes???
