Eastham is the quiet neighbor of Wellfleet and Orleans, and begins the Cape Cod National Seashore, with it’s forty pristine acres of dunes, beaches, trails, uplands, and kettle ponds stretching across the arm of Cape Cod to Provincetown.
Eastham is a central point on the outer cape, making it an ideal base for exploring mid to outer Cape Cod, from Hyannis to Provincetown. Eastham, and the entire outer cape, has inspired countless artists, writers and photographers with it's incredible qualities of light, untouched rugged landscapes, and quaint village scenes.
The landscape is nearly as idyllic and pastoral today as it was when Henry David Thoreau scribed his classic 'Cape Cod' published 1865, the same vistas which inspired Henry Beston's 1920's classic, 'The Outermost House'.
The 1920's also brought prohibition to the US, and rum running was a lucrative business for local enterprisers. Cape Cod's craggy bay side and many private sandy inlets made for a smuggler's dream, and romantic rumors of buried treasure persist.
Eastham has many interesting historic structures including the Cape's oldest wind-driven windmill. The town is famous for growing top-rate asparagus, turnips, and strawberries.
One of the countries top-ten rated beaches is in Eastham, Coast Guard Beach, and has been called by The New York Times "Cape Cod's Little Secret".
The town was the original home of the Nauset Indian Tribe, later settled by pilgrims, and marks some of the first pages of American history books in recounting The Mayflower's initial landing and Miles Standish's first encounter with the native inhabitants, the Nauset Indians, at First Encounter Beach.
A stay in Eastham is suitable for nature lovers, beach lovers, cyclists, fishing aficionados, birdwatchers, and anyone desiring a restful and restorative vacation by the sea.
