My happy place

7am with a coffee - that's where you'll find me. I'll be on one of the benches on Mayo beach watching the world and soaking up the ambience. Go away - you're in my spot!

Being on Wellfleet Bay provides beachgoers with a calmer experience than at the Ocean shore. Nevertheless, check wind and tide conditions before visiting. Westerly winds can sometimes kick up and make it less than pleasurable. As for tides, we prefer high tide for wading and swimming, but low tide uncovers all kinds of interesting things in the sand.

Mayo Beach is calm waters beach that I usually see a lot of families with children at. The perking lot is close and they recently rebuilt the walkway to the beach. If you are into photography, then this is an easy place to get to

After reading the reviews, we planned one day of our one week vacation for Mayo Beach to accommodate a few in our group that could not make the climb to the ocean beaches. We drove by the prior day to see Mayo beach and it looked perfect. WOW, were we disappointed. When we arrived it was low tide which exposed... More

Clean white sand and plenty of shells to collect. The water was warm on a very hot July day, but not so warm that a person wouldn't feel refreshed. Got take out from Mac's on the Pier and ate it at the beach. Lovely view of Great Island as well. Beautiful location.

Unlike most beaches in he area at Mayo beach you do not need a sticker or cash to get into this beach. Lost of clam and scallop fisherman, you can see them at low tide and even talk to them! Lost of crabs and hermit crabs, snails and small fish, poky for the little ones feet! Wear sandals, not flip... More

Most of Wellfleet's beaches require a 3-day $45 parking sticker and are quite steep to get to. But Mayo beach (located on the bayside) has free parking, no entrance fee, and is the same height as the sidewalk, allowing easy accessibility for baby carriages and strollers. The beach is sandy and comfortable and is in close proximity to restaurants and... More

I've been coming to the Cape my whole life but only just discovered the whole Wellfleet harbor area! This beach is so easy to park at (free!), a very short walk to the water, and nice and calm whether the tide is out or in. You can easily spend a few hours at the beach, make your way to the...

A small beach on the north side of the Wellfleet Harbor, Mayo Beach offers an opportunity for a refreshing swim in the heart of town. More interesting is a leisurely stroll from the harbor to the original lighthouse (now a private residence) with a full view of the entrance to the harbor. A constant flow of boats along with local... More
