Great Island Beach, Wellfleet

Great Island is a a hidden gem of a beach on the bay side of Wellfleet, with tourist free shores that stretch for miles. It was a scorcher of a day, even the water was exceptionally warm. It was perfect for lengthy swims to cool off in between soaking up the sun and venturing on long walks.
The rocky expanse stretches over a good portion of the sand, not a bad place to search for beach treasures like sea glass, wampum and unique rocks and shells. Besides the gorgeous landscape, this funky lean-to driftwood beach hut called for a photo shoot.Salty, sandy, relaxed and rejuvenated - this is what summer days (make that weekends) are made for!

  1. Even though I'm bummed you couldn't come out Saturday night, I totally understand why you escaped to the Cape! Hopefully you feel more recharged for the rest of the week!

  2. What a perfect beach day! I fear that the one time I've been the cape this summer may be the only one (due to late summer business) but it sure was fabulous!

  15. This post rocks! Very few people have written about this beach and I think some are confused because it's at the end of Griffin Island Road. Nice work!
