This is an Oceanside Beach in Wellfleet. The water is chilly till about August then starts to warm up. To get down to the beach there is a large staircase with 2 flights of stairs. In the summer months there is a fee to enter the National Seashore but off season you can go to the beach for free.

I love a beach with waves, and the ocean side of the lower Cape offers fun surf. To top it off, there are the famous Cape Cod sand dunes and a gorgeous view.

Title says it all. This is the best beach in CC. Sandy dunes and a great beach. Expect to do some walking to get to the beach. There are also stairs to go down to the sand. Enjoy!

So many of the beaches on the Cape are just sitting empty, beautiful. This is one of them. All I need is a chair, a book, and the waves.

As Good As it Gets ! The Great Dune walls you off from the rat race business society and keeps you in touch with what is meaningful...wave after crashing ,then lulling, wave. And Big colorful rocks are revealed during low tide ...a gift for free from our sea. Bring water and food and Boogie Boards. Got married overlooking it at... More

Lovely beach for a picnic, while you eat you can talk to the seal and watch the whales in the distance, while fighting of 2 feet tall sea gull that are not satisfied with waiting for your leftovers. After lunch take a stroll on the beautiful beach. And after Laborday entrance is free - we love free.

Stopped on our travels up to Truro and P-town. Wife is a professional photographer and she just went absolutely nuts over the area and views. October was a great time, lighting is just right and the combination of foliage and different hews of the marsh grasses were gorgeous.

This is an absolutely beautiful beach, with sweeping views over the Atlantic....really gorgeous !! We saw seals swimming in the ocean, and the sound of the waves, and the smell of the sea are just magical !

We are visiting Cape Cod from Toronto and I must say this beach was the best stop we made on our trip! Breathtaking views of the Atlantic from the top when you arrive. Couldn't believe it. We also saw a seal in the waves thankfully! Didn't think we would be lucky enough to see one! You could see for miles... More

The beach itself is fine - miles of sand, easy access by stairs from large car park. The site of Marconi's historic radio exchange with UK was underwhelming, though. All the equipment is long gone and the site itself is disappearing through coastal erosion. Coming from Scotland, I was not happy to see the official plaque referring to "the king... More
