At the end of a long road outside of town you'll find Duck Harbor beach. The parking lot is big, although everything's crowded in the summer in Wellfleet. The beach is long and flat, and there's plenty of room to spread out. It is rocky...More

Anyone who is fortunate enough to find this breathtaking panorama of the beach and inlet is most fortunate. At high tide the boats can come and go....at low tide the flats seem to go on forever, where oysters are harvested by the local residents and...More

Beautiful, quiet location on the bay side of north Wellfleet to watch the sunset. Parking is decent (no non-residents allowed during the day), but recommended arrival is an hour before sunset. Lovely views of Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown and Race Point. Take an hour or...More

It can be hard to find Duck Harbor but keep trying. Just make sure to be ahead of the time posted for sunset and maybe bring a beach chair. It is always the best spot to end a summer day!

We went there a few times to sea the grand sunsets . It is visited by many people the added bonus was the siting of the bobbling heads of 8 seals . This is a must see beach.

I also have bad knees. I think that this beach is far easier to get to than others in Wellfleet. You do have to walk up and down a small dune but it is nothing like the one in front of The Beachcomber at Cahoon Hollow.
