White Crest Beach

520 Ocean View Dr, Wellfleet, MA 02667
A lifeguard tower sits high up on the dunes at White Crest Beach in Wellfleet, Cape Cod.

A beautiful oceanside beach backed by towering sand dunes, the waves at White Crest Beach make it a popular beach for surfers. You can also catch an occasional paraglider launching off the cliffs. The only way down to the beach from the parking lot is via a steep hike down the dunes, so consider visiting one of the bayside beaches instead if you need easier access.

Parking: 186 spaces
