White Crest Beach Wellfleet is a small, quiet and somewhat hidden oceanside beach in Wellfleet. Situation on Ocean Drive, between Lecount and Cahoon Hollow Beaches, White Crest offers stunning oceanside views, high cliffs and ample parking.   If you’re not looking, you could miss it on your drive down Ocean Drive, however White Crest is not a beach to skip, it’s beautiful and typically less busy than Lecount Hollow given it’s location.  Located a short bike ride from the Southfleet, White Crest is not handicap accessible, but does offer restrooms and lifeguards making this beach kid friendly.
