“Tranquil and beautiful sunset”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

A little out of the way from the major attractions of Cape Cod but well worth the detour if you are seeking unspoiled nature and away from the crowds.

The beach is nice but the really interesting feature is the tidal salt marsh, which can be accessed from the Bound Brook Island Road. Tranquil and beautiful, the sunset is particularly magnificent. It can get quite windy so appropriate clothing is required. Also lots of insects so should take plenty of repellent.

“Favorite Bay Beach Walk”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

We have always enjoyed walking at Duck Harbor. There is room enough to walk without joining a crowd. It is also a fun place to find pretty stones. It is fairly level so many can manage if they can get to the beach. The walk from the parking lot to the beach could be a challenge for some with walking difficulties. A great off season place to spend some time.

“Heavenly Sunsets”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

When visiting Wellfleet, drive all the way out Chequesset Neck Road and take a right hand turn towards Duck Creek. We are originally from Wellfleet, going back 13 generations, and as far back as I can remember we've been heading out to this part of town to watch the sunset. The best viewing location in town. The beach is a fun place to go and relax, too! Pack a snack, bring a chair and a book, sit down, relax and breathe in the sea air.

This is the ultimate Cape Cod experience as far as I'm concerned! I hope you enjoy it, too

“Best sunset spot!”
Reviewed 22 August 2013 via mobile

We have been coming to Wellfleet for years and always get to Duck Harbor at least once to watch the sunset.
We pack up a picnic dinner and arrive about an hour before. The view is spectacular. P'town is off to your right.
Nice strip of beach.

“The best place to enjoy the sun-sets in Cape Cod!”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

It's my favorite place to stay in the afternoon. The water is warmer, the beach is not overcrowded, and you can see the Tower of distant P-town.I like to see lots of families getting together in the later hours of the day, to see the sun-set.The colors are always impressive and the picture is unforgettable..
