Mayo Beach overlooks Wellfleet Harbor and the not-so-distant Breakwater Light. This beach is pretty long but loses a lot of space during high tide. However, at low tide, there isn’t much water to swim in, and the sand can get muddy and shelly. The water is calm and warm and the beach is bordered by beach grass. The view is beautiful, with a rock jetty, boats heading in and out of the harbor, and the dunes of Great Island providing a relaxing scene. If the kids get bored with the beach, take them to the playground at Baker’s Field across the street.
