Established in 1938, this 8,000-acre fresh water refuge borders the Atlantic Ocean on the east and Back Bay on the west. The barrier islands feature large sand dunes, maritime forests, fresh water marshes, ponds, ocean beach, and large impoundments for wintering wildfowl. These tranquil habitats can be accessed by marsh trails, bikes, a boardwalk overlook, and the beach itself. Back Bay is located approximately 18 miles south of the resort area. Back Bay Tram Tours run from April 1st and continue through October 31st. Please contact us for further information.
