 Coatue

At the end of Wauwinet Road, past The Wauwinet Inn.  Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge managed by Trustees of Reservations; beach sticker required for vehicles from Trustees of Reservations ($35-$125 depending on registration and membership).

Great for fishing and for seeing Great Point Lighthouse up close (but not inside).  Rolling dunes, bayberry, beach plum, heather, and beach grass. Salt marsh and maritime shrubland.  The largest red cedar savanna and woodland in New England.  Gray and harbor seals. 

Public restrooms available at the lighthouse Memorial Day-Columbus Day.  Sections of the refuge are sometimes closed to protect nesting shorebirds.  Dogs are not allowed at any time.  Guided tours with Trustee naturalists offered in-season. Seasonal hunting permitted. For more details, go to www.TheTrustees.org Property Lookup.
