Gull Pond is located just a few miles from the Southfleet Motor Inn and is a great place to swim and boat with the whole family. Gull Pond has docks for the kids to play on and jump off of, and the water is shallow and clean. Located right at the pond you can rent boating equipment such as: kayaks, canoes, seacycles, paddleboats and more. You can rent by the half hour, half day and they even have a 3 hour special. Rentals are available from 9am to 6pm weather permitting and you do need a Wellfleet beach sticker to park at the pond during the Summer months.
Adults can enjoy the beach while the kids play on the beach and swim in the water. The beach is partly shaded which is great for little ones and adults who like to stay cooler. Gull pond has been a family favorite for many years and is a great alternative to the ocean beaches.
