The beach is easier to access from the parking lot than the adjoining beaches, as the dune walkway down is not as steep. To get into the water, the beach has a more gradual slope than many Cape Cod ocean beaches, which makes getting in and out of the water easier. There is a lifeguard for a major portion of the beach. The surf was breaking in a predictable and gentle way every day we were there, and we heard that it is known for good surfing waves.

The beach is lovely and was sandier with much fewer rocks/pebbles as you enter/exit the water than White Crest Beach up the road (also lovely). Unfortunately, visitor parking stickers do not grant you parking access to Lecount Hollow as it does to White Crest. We solved this by dropping kids and gear off in parking lot and then parking at the rail trail and one adult biking back to beach. After 5 or 6 the parking is accessible by anyone. Enjoy!

Lecount hollow is arguable the best on the Cape. The sand and location. Is great. Usually great surf and some days you can watch a dozen surfers take the waves. The dunes as you enter provide a delightful view of the ocean and beach. It is the best!

Atlantic beaches on outer Cape are hard to beat. Can't really go wrong with any of them. Hopefully the sharks will not continue to be a problem.

Our favorite beaches are LeCount Hollow on the ocean and Great Pond in Wellfleet for freshwater swimming. Great Pond has a lot of steps and the ocean beaches also require going up and down the dunes but as long as we can (we are in our 70s) we will continue to enjoy them. We avoid Cahoon Hollow (too crowded because of the Beachcomber) and White Crest (the highest of the dunes and known more as a beach for surfers.) LeCount and Newcom Hollow are our preferred ocean beaches (only open to Wellfleet renters with a beach sticker) along with Marconi which is run by the National Park Service.

Plan to head for the beach early as Wellfleet beach parking lots are small - the advantage of this is that you have plenty of sand to call your own. The beauty of the dunes, waves, seals, and occasional whale passing by can't be beat - and a dip in a kettle pond on the way home caps off the day.

Wle love all the Wellfleet and Truro beaches--ocean, bay and pond. This is closest to the house, can be reached by bike; there are bathrooms and a snack truck in the parking lot, and lifeguards, and the path down the dune is not too onerous. I think the prevalence of gray seals is getting out of hand, but since they feed very close to shore it is interesting to watch them, and this summer a very large group evident every day between Lecount Hollow and Marconi beaches, a reason to take a walk along the shore.
