- Free for seniors if you have a National Park pass. Lots of parking, restrooms available. A lot of steps down to the beach. Water was warm enough to swim when we were there. Life guards on duty.Written September 12, 2022
- Easy, breezy hike. Well established path to wooden decking in the swamp. So close to the ocean walk. It’s a nice trail.Written October 13, 2021
- Scrub pine and oak, tidal marsh, fiddler crabs and wild turkeys and great birdwatching. Benches to sit on an look out on Wellfleet Bay. Informative visitor center.Written August 2, 2022
- Fantastic alternate activity for a not-so-sunny day in Wellfleet. It’s a nice walk. Not very accessible for strollers. Definitely bring bug spray.Written November 30, 2021
- Classic Cape Cod beach, not at all crowded. Interesting boats to watch in and out of the harbor, since it's a working harbor as well as for pleasure craft. There's a summer camp across the street that uses the beach at times, enough parking, a bike rack. A block from the marina and its restaurants and gallery. An easy place to be.Written August 2, 2022
- I am an engineer and love this type of history when traveling. The Marconi Wireless Station offers a chance to visit where the first wireless transatlantic telegraph transmission was made. A small piece of American history that took place in a beautiful spot in Cape Cod.
Although a lot has changed since Marconi's day, there is a viewing platform that offers some spectacular views and some signage that provides a bit of the history. This is a great place to see seals from atop the dunes as there is other lookouts in this area just down the walkway from the platform viewing station.
Ample parking when we visited. An enjoyable stop on our vacation. History, Natural Beauty and a Relaxing Hike.Written May 31, 2021
- Fantastic day at the beach yesterday. Seals, surf and this one kid that tried for hours to throw that traffic cone to the top of the pole. And then HE DID IT !Written September 11, 2022
- This beach is awesome….but…there is a steep decline and incline on the way in and out so plan accordingly because it can be a kick in the butt to drag all your stuff out at the end of the day and if you have older relatives it can be quite burdensome. I love this beach however. Another drawback is the amount of rocks on the shoreline can make it difficult getting out of the water( wear water shoes if need be).
The water is clear the beach doesn’t get too crowded because of the limited parking spaces. People not accustomed to Massachusetts beaches will say the water is cold but on a hot July or August day it is perfect.
Love this beach even with the flaws states above.Written August 22, 2021
- Uncle Tim’s Bridge is a hidden gem of the Outer Cape. Parking is free (with a box for donations) and convenient. The bridge crosses an estuary to Hamblen Island, a small island with a network of easy trails and benches. Our favorite part of our stroll was viewing the thousands (no exaggeration) of Pogies (Atlantic Menhaden) that filled the estuary along the bridge, where the shallow water apparently provides a refuge from the harbor seals that consider them a tasty meal. The walk is scenic and dog-friendly.Written October 10, 2021
- Terrific beach that’s part of the Cape Cod National Seashore. The beach is absolutely stunning, but be prepared to climb down and up the sandy slope, but so worth it. The Beachcomber Restaurant is terrific and offers take out or eat in choices. Parking is limited ($30) , so get there early, although parking opens at 9am. The beach closes to swimming if sharks are seen in the water. We had to stay out of the water for about 90 minutes while there due to shark sitings off the coast. Overall one of the finer beach’s on Cape CodWritten August 15, 2020
- Staff is always helpful. Get discount passes to area attractions (e.g., Plymouth Plantation) using your library card. Terrific place for kids.Written September 25, 2020
- Beautiful clean kettle pond. Great way to cool off at the end of the day. Refreshing, warm, clean water.Written July 26, 2022
- This is a great little out of the way beach on the bay side. It’s got a fair amount of shells and rocks so water shoes helpful. We had been to the ocean side beaches and this was a great spot to experience the bay side. Not crowded in the middle of an early July day. The water was calm and cold. The views are beautiful. The dunes are also beautiful. I would recommend this beach for a day when you want to get away from the waves and the shark warnings!Written August 8, 2022
- We went to the flea market on a Sunday morning. There were not very many vendors there at the time so we only paid $1 to park (they said between $1 and $3 to park). The few vendors that were there were ok but I wouldn't drive any distance to go there on a Sunday morning in September given the very limited amount that were there.Written September 18, 2022
- Beautiful art and craft. My favorite pieces were way too expensive for me, but there were some delightful cards and other smaller things that I bought. Like walking around a museum, really a joy to browse.Written August 2, 2022
