A wonder you have to see when in Nantucket is the Coskata Coatue wildlife refuge. It is a pair of two peninsulas with warm weather and awe-inspiring views. The refuge is under the management of the Trustees of Reservations, an organization that takes on conservation duty in Massachusetts.
The over 1000-acre land is home to extensive cedar woodland, punctuated with beach plum, heather, and bayberry. To visit Coskata Coatue, you will need a four-wheel-drive vehicle to handle the soft-sand roads. A thing to know is that you can only drive on these roads.
You will need a vehicle permit, which you can buy from Wauwinet Gatehouse between May and October. In a move to protect shorebirds and other animals in this refuge, some areas remain closed, more so between May and August. Also, dogs are not allowed between April and September.
You may engage in several activities on Coskata-Coatue, like surf fishing, bird watching, hiking, and photography. Off-roading on the designated trails remains a popular activity.
