A quiet bay-side beach adjacent to the Great Island wildlife refuge. Miles of pristine shore to walk. Dramatic tide change. Friends for the kids. Lovely water, never too too cold. Privacy if you walk a little ways.

Duck Harbor is a beautiful bay beach that never seems to get crowded (though the small parking lot can get tight on a hot day). It's calm (like all the bay beaches) but still wild and natural (you have to walk over a dune to get to the water). It's our family favorite!

Our last day at Wellfleet , we arrived at the bay at Duck Harbor and it was still several hours to high tide. The beach was a bit rocky but the children enjoyed the sand . A huge castle was built , the sun was setting and the tide slowly rose and a tidal river was arriving to overtake the castle. Much whoo and hollering arouse as the castle was flooded! Cheers came from onlookers! Beautiful evening , goodbye bay goodbye cape Cod , till next summer.

It's out of the way so not ever crowded. It has beautiful views. You need a Wellfleet sticker to park there but if you don't want to get one you can park at the free lot for the Great Island Trail and ride bikes the 1/2 mile or so to the beach. Great sunset viewing!!

Do not miss the sunset at this beach! It was so incredibly beautiful and ranks right up there with Menemsha on Martha's Vineyard! A word of warning though-dress appropriately as you will have to contend with the bugs during this time of year.

Great for little kids, best at high tide. Visiting seals, sweeping views.
