Welcome to Wellfleet
The Town of Wellfleet offers an abundance of quaint rural seaside character and charm and spectacular natural resources.
We have 9 beautiful beaches that line both sides of our town. If you prefer calm waters you can visit Mayo Beach which is located near our harbor where parking is free! If you enjoy crashing waves you may want to visit Marconi Beach (located across the street from The Southfleet). You can drive, walk or easily ride a bike down the 1 mile long paved road. You will not be disappointed.
Wellfleet also has a handful of kettle ponds which are a great choice for little kids and for those who enjoy a relaxing swim in freshwater. One of our favorites is Gull Pond. Located only 6 miles from The Southfleet you can easily pack up the kids, some snacks, and enjoy a day at the pond.
If you prefer long walks in the woods Wellfleet offers a bounty of hiking trails that are perfect for people of all ages. The entrance to the Atlantic White Cedar Swamp Trail is just across the street from The Southfleet. A favorite for all visitors, this trail features a 1.2 mile loop that winds through the woods as well as through a swamp full of cedar trees.
These are just some of the natural resources that Wellfleet has to offer. We hope you visit us soon to enjoy all of the natural beauty that surrounds our beautiful town.
