“Rightly Famous for its Sunset Views”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

We arrived to an almost empty beach at 6:45pm and waited for sunset, which was at 8:06pm. It was well worth it. More people arrived in the meantime, some with champagne or picnic dinners. As soon as the sun dropped below the horizon, everyone clapped and turned to go home. A lovely way to end the day.

“DUCK HARBOR BEACH CAPE COD MA”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

This is a quiet beach less traveled. It is located on the Bay side of WELLFLEET, so there are less waves and many rocks for the adventurous rock picker :) the terrain is beautiful and walking along the water is relaxing. Suggest wearing good sneakers or water shoes here.

“Great sunset spot in Wellfleet”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We love to head to Duck Harbor in the late afternoon and enjoy some quite family time while we wait for the sun to set.

There are not too many places to see the sun set over water in Wellfleet, but this is one of them.

“Spectacular beach with dunes, seagrass, solitude”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We did not try to get there for a sunset, given the small size of the parking lot and the crowds who reportedly show up for the sundown show. But at mid morning, it was quiet and solitary. I didn't expect any views this grand on the bay side of the Cape. I would happily revisit for a day or so. Guidebooks say to come an hour before sundown, bring a picnic supper and eat on the picnic tables. Couldn't locate any tables, so bring a blanket.
