All of the ocean beaches are along the same stretch of the Atlantic Ocean. Marconi, Nauset Light, and Coast Guard are National Seashore Beaches. Maguire’s Landing (LeConte Hollow), White Crest, Cahoon Hollow, and Newcomb Hollow are Wellfleet Beaches.
You can surf at Coast Guard and White Crest Beach. The Beachcomber, a restaurant and bar, is located on Cahoon Hollow Beach. Marconi has the largest parking lot. There are also several bay beaches, like First Encounter Beach in Eastham and Sunken Meadow Beach in Wellfleet.
The Ocean beaches tend to have colder water and bigger waves, while the bay beaches have warmer and calmer water. If you like hunting for sea creatures, like hermit crabs, then your best bet is to head to a bay beach while the tide is going out, but if you like to play in the waves, an ocean beach is the way to go!
