There is a large parking lot directly in front of the beach that is free to the public and rarely fill up. Mayo Beach is next to Wellfleet Town Pier stretching down Kendrick Avenue.

The beach was clean, safe for little ones to swim and play, and it was not crowded.

We loved Mayo beach for our three-year-old. There's a great park right there, with restrooms, a quiet beach with clean sand - no muck if you go down the street toward Mac's. The water is shallow and calm enough for a toddler to go in / out of the water on his own. Plus... Mac's has the best fried clams and ice cream!

Mayo Beach in Wellfleet is free, with abundant free parking, and is right on the harbor, with stunning views of Great Island and Indian Neck. Not great for swimming at low tide, but otherwise a great hassle-free option during the crowded summertime.

Mayo Beach is my favorite Beach as it is good for families and there are no big dunes or anything. It is great and high tide and at low tide and it is close to the yacht and Country Club where you can play Golf and Tennis

It's a nice beach in a bay near Wellfleet where you don't have to pay for parking

Uncrowded beach overlooking the harbor. Relaxing to watch the boats coming and going. Fun to see the oyster fishermen working at low tide.
