About Long Pond: 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.

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.
