About Newcomb Hollow: 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.

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

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.

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....
