One of the larger ponds in Wellfleet, Gull Pond has a nice shady beach and warmer waters. A great spot if you are looking to explore some of the non-ocean waters. Parking is available with sticker.

A sluiceway connects Gull Pond with Higgins Pond. This small, shallow passage way was built by by Native Americans hundreds of years ago to catch herring during their seasonal run.

Note: Jack's Boat Rental is no longer running on site at Gull Pond.

This pond was best for swimming with a toddler. His parents raved about it. Lecount for the ocean (the dog especially loved that one), and Indian Neck and Mayo beach were also great - lots of options in Wellfleet.
