Beatiful beach, to walk on or just admire from street promenade. Tends to disappear at high tide but the rocks and birds on them are a very pretty sight.

Recently took a trip to Wells and went to the beach multiple times. Beach was clean and everyone worked to social distance. Saw some seals swimming one of the days. My wife and I want to come back next year. Note that most of the beach disappears at high tide so plan your day accordingly.

Took a walk on the beach at low tide. It was very clean and very relaxing. Had an ice cream cone to finish the afternoon.

We went to wells beach almost everyday. The parking is ample and free you just need to be patient as someone is always coming or going. Bathroom facilities are clean and easy to get to from the beach. Great moonrise.....never got up for the sunrise but I’ve heard it’s great too. High tide is very important. You don’t want to get set up too close to the water if you plan on staying through high tide or you’ll end up moving a few times. The water was cold but not unbearable enough not to go in for a dip or two.

The first time I went to the beach I didn’t like it only because I had went to the wrong part!!!! If you type wells Beach into your gps it takes you to the wrong part- by all the hotels and take out restaurants- don’t park there! Make a left when you’re there into Atlantic Ave and take that all the way down- at the very end you’ll see a big public parking lot ($4/hr meter) and a separate beach entrance- the beach is gorgeous!!! Big and long , there are restrooms but there is no food/drinks nearby so pack your own. Beautiful beach!! If you park in the wrong place it’s a smaller beach, has rocks, and has big steps to go down- if you go down those steps you’re in the wrong place. The actual beach is gorgeous and has no steps to enter.
