Good for: Boating, Walking


A great spot for fishing, boating and searching for seashells. It is not easily accessible and it is a bit of a walk from the trailhead. If you are feeling ambitious you can hike all the way out to Jeremy Point and back.It is about 7 miles roundtrip. A truly pristine area on Cape Cod.

My absolute favorite beach in the area is Great Island which is never crowded and is spectacularly beautiful. It is a bit of a hike to get to the beach but worth every ounce of energy. It is best to go when the tide is in if you want to swim without walking a mile to get to deep enough water. The beach is very peaceful, serene and magical!

This island is in the view of the house [Wellfleet Vacation Rental ID 29242] and is totally empty of homes, just wilderness, scrub oak and pine, and hiking trails with waves and water in all sides. Amazing scenery!!
