A popular beach destination in the summer, Newcomb Hollow, is bordered by sand dunes. The sand is white and soft and the water is refreshing. You will need to descend and ascend steep sand dunes in order to access this beach so you may want to keep that in mind when deciding what items to bring to the beach. Parking sticker (resident, seasonal, weekly, or daily) is required.

Beautiful beach for walking. Loved it early morning and late afternoon. Water very cold but exhilarating on a hot day!

We have gone to this beach for over 20 years. Our kids grew up on this beach. Easy access, easy to get away from the crowd if you want. Great sand bar and dunes!

Newcomb Hollow!!!!! It's so fun to run down the dunes! And we saw many seals!!! We love all of the beaches in Wellfleet, they are all unique in their own ways.

Wonderful National seashore beach, just beautiful. It gets busy and a line forms if you don't go early ! At low tide great boogie boarding!

Further down the road then the other beaches and a less steep descent to get from parking lot to beach area.

Walk a mile to the north and you have the whole beach to yourself.

It is a short walk [Wellfleet Vacation Rental ID 33825] to Newcomb Hollow beach where there is endless undeveloped seashore to walk.
Corin S.USA2 reviewsMember since: Jan 2020
Best for families with young children as dune/walk to and from parking area is easier and large sandbar area (low tide) offers fun for all ages.
Becky H.Bridgewater, MA3 reviewsMember since: Mar 2014
Easy beach access - no steep hill up and down the dune. Very clean and nice, sandy bottom to enjoy the waves!

With children and lots of gear Newcomb works best for us.
Amy M.Altamont, NY2 reviewsMember since: Jul 2018
Perfect sized waves for fun boogie boarding...big enough to have fun but not so big that they were scary. Clear water and almost no rocks, shells or seaweed to deal with.

Fun surf, not crowded if you walk a bit. Food truck in the parking lot.

We loved the local Powers Landing beach for SUPPing, but Newcomb Hollow was a favorite with our teens for Body surfing and also we had a fire on the beach after obtaining a Fire Permit from the town. Great fun!

Wellfleet sticker beach-dunes easier to get down than others when kids where small. Gorgeous beach, great waves and water, restroom facilities. Love the Newcomb Hollow Olympics with lifeguards in August

Beautiful dunes and fun atmosphere for kids and adults.
Jen S.North Windham, CT4 reviewsMember since: Feb 2012
Besides visiting Great Pond for a quick dip almost every night before the sun went down we did head over to Newcomb Hollow for a beach day. The dune to the beach is the least steep and shortest in length. Also, this beach was the least crowded during the week leading up to July 4th. Wonderful surf and easy access.

We loved Newcomb Hollow... beautiful Ocean beach... there's an incline but it is not as steep as some of the other ocean beaches... Gorgeous... we saw seals... clean water...
Mary Jean C.Bridgewater, MA2 reviewsMember since: Jun 2009
The walk to the beach is not as steep as others in Wellfleet. Also, during the week you did not get closed out. On the week-ends usually if you were there before noon you did not have to wait to get onto the beach. Even if there was a waiting line on the week-ends it was not too bad....

Great place for a bonfire at night...get a permit.
