Where: Long Pond Rd, Wellfleet View Map
Water Type: Fresh water
Good for: Swimming, canoeing, Kayaking
Long Pond is a great spot for swimming. The water is clear and there is a floating dock for swimming to and jumping from. Although the beach is small there is a large grassy knoll behind it that is a great picnic spot. Plenty of wildlife to see, especially frogs and turtles. Good spot for kayaking and canoeing. Parking permit required.

A quiet and not crowded place for a relaxing day. The water was warm and crystal clear. All you need is a Wellfleet parking sticker.

Long Pond, Welfleet. Beautiful place. mainly because it was our first favorite, years ago and has sentimental attachment as well as splendor

Easy access to luxuriously soft water, perfect for babies, kids, the elderly. Peaceful early and later, joyous in between.

Warm, sandy bottom, clear and clean - no bugs! Permit parking until after 4PM - can get really crowded though and tight maneuvering for spaces. No facilities - porta-johns only. Afterwards, either some music at the Beachcomber (just down Long Pond Rd to the ocean) or the other into Wellfleet for Music @ Mayo beach Thursday & Friday nights and a really nice dinner at Pearl.
