Wellfleet Bay provides peace and unmatched beauty on the hillsides and shoreline overlooking Wellfleet Harbor. Extensive trails bring you to a panoramic salt marsh, sandy barrier beach, and pine woodlands, each attracting a wide array of wildlife. The sanctuary features a universally accessible trail and an award-winning “green” nature center with numerous exhibits and aquariums. Please leave dogs and other pets at home.
Winter on the Outer Cape is typically on the quiet side, to say the least. Nevertheless, nearly 1,500 people passed through the sanctuary's admissions desk during the first quarter of 2021—up from just under 1,300 in 2020!
