The comments

Marconi Beach: “Truthfully, there is no ‘bad’ choice for a beach in all of Wellfleet. All are ‘family’ friendly, great places to meet and greet folks.” ... Long Point: “Now this is a spot, no matter if it is peak season or off season. You can always find some peace and quiet to just take it all in. . . . Breathtaking views.” ... Coast Guard Beach: “Best Beach and Hiking Trail” ... Race Point Beach: “Race Point Beach is the most unprotected of the three Provincetown beaches. It is on the north side of the Cape and is the true North Atlantic. The waves are bigger, the beach is wider, and the water colder. . . . One of the great pluses is the opportunity to see whales. There are often whale sightings from the beach.”
