Cahoon Hollow Beach – Wellfleet

Cahoon Hollow Beach in Wellfleet is best known as the “Beachcomber” beach, for it’s close proximity to seasonal favorite restaurant and live music venue; The Beachcomber. Located on Ocean View Drive, along with the other Wellfleet oceanside beaches, Cahoon Hollow is as beautiful as it is difficult to descend, and ascend due to the steep sand cliffs. Don’t fret, walking paths in the summer are well worn, and the reward for making it back up that cliff is a meal, drink and lively entertainment!
