Nauset Heights is an area along Nauset Beach and the National Seashore in East Orleans, Massachusetts, the outermost part of Cape Cod. Originally inhabited by the Nauset Indians, today Nauset Heights is home for more than 200 families, including summer residents and visitors from all over the world. The shoreline changes every year and with every storm, but without foot prints or Jeep tracks, the beach remains as unspoiled as it was 10,000 years ago.

Nauset Heights News
The NHA Environmental Committee is pleased to share the following news:
The Baker-Polito Administration announced over $1.8 million in funding to support local efforts to prepare for and reduce the impacts from coastal storms and climate change, including storm surge, flooding, erosion and sea level rise. Orleans was one of 19 communities to receive funds.
Happy Fourth of July! This is a “head’s up” to remind everyone that Nauset Spit will be closed to ORV traffic after 8:30 PM over the weekend.
We have also received a request from the Orleans Police Department cautioning residents not to shoot fireworks on, or over, the beach where piping plovers are nesting. If disturbed by fireworks, this may cause the plovers to re-nest and to lay fresh eggs, causing further closures of the beach to beach-goers and ORVs going forward. If necessary, please ensure that any fireworks are directed out over the water.
