Assateague Island National Seashore is on a 37-mile long barrier island with unspoiled beaches and abundant wildlife, located in Maryland, on the Atlantic coast of the Delmarva peninsula. Of all the beaches along the east coast, I would say this one is my favorite.
You can enjoy swimming in the cool ocean or laying in the sand for part of the day, then spend another part of the day hiking through trails and spotting the wild horses that roam the island, as well as other wildlife such as sitka deer, a wide variety of birds (great blue herons, egrets, seagulls, etc.) the Delmarva Fox Squirrel, and more!
This painting is from a photo I took in early September:
