Cape Cod National Seashore. You will need a permit from the National Park Service. They will require a bunch of equipment, all of which is common sense for anybody that goes off-road anyways.

Make sure you air down before hitting the sand. Way down. Like 10 psi.

We just took a rental Izusu trooper on the beach down East Orleans with street pressure. Usually on the sand we run around 20-22psi.

My folks still have a place there. We found these sites to be most helpful:

Bend over for when you pay. I don't think they do day passes anymore.

Yes, I'm sure. Although it does depend somewhat on the tire size and wheel width. I've gone even lower with 33's and 36's. On packed sand you can get away with street pressure but you better be light as a feather on the gas. I can't count the number of yuppies I've seen buried up to their axles because they ignored the requirement to air down.

Sandy Neck Beach in Sandwich is great to drive on. I think to get a pass, it's pretty expensive. I know it's $75 for residents.
