Hiller’s Cove Beach – also known as Aucoot Beach – is a small, secluded beach on the sandy shores of Hillers Cove. Mattapoisett families enjoy coming to this town beach to play in the cove’s calm waters, which are great for small children. From the beach, you can watch sailboats drift by on Buzzards Bay, with Cape Cod as a scenic backdrop beyond.
Habitats & Wildlife
The protected waters of Hiller’s Cove are home to a small salt marsh alongside the sandy beach. This habitat is a paradise for birds, shellfish, and even small mammals. Look for crabs skirting along the beach, and ospreys and seagulls circling the water in search of food. Over in the salt marsh, egrets and blue herons stalk unsuspecting fish and crabs. And the nearby forest nurtures wildlife like turkey and deer.
