Ocean beach - Henry David Thoreau called the sandy stretch along Eastham, Wellfleet, Truro and Provincetown "The Great Beach."  Towering cliffs carved into sand dunes, called scarps, overlook the beaches of fine sand along the Atlantic Ocean side. The 40-mile uninterrupted stretch of beach is the largest on the East Coast. There is also walking and biking trails, marshes, fresh and salt-water ponds, forests, historic structures, and lighthouses.  In all, the federally protected land includes more than 43,000 acres. The ocean beach with it's bigger waves is  5 miles from Little Neck.

 

Marconi Station Site - Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi set up shop on the high cliffs overlooking what is now Marconi Beach in Wellfleet in the early 1900s to work on his project of sending wireless transmissions across the Atlantic. While repairs were being made to the Wellfleet station, Marconi sent a transmission across the seas from a station in Nova Scotia. In 1903, Marconi sent historic messages back and forth from the U.S. President and the King of England from Wellfleet. Today, a model of the station sits at the original site.

 

Great Island - A Wellfleet treasure. Great Island was a center of mariner activity in the 18th and 19th centuries. Today, a walking trail winds around between sand dunes, salt marshes and the sea.  You can kayak to this protected ecosystem in about 15 minutes from the Little Neck. There are no houses there.  Swimmers: Swim to Great Island!   Walkers: walk there at low tide.   It's pristine and secluded.

 

Wellfleet:   Authentic character and charm about 75 miles out into the Atlantic ocean.  About half of Wellfleet is preserved as part of the Cape Cod National Seashore. There's a unique nautical history dating to the 1700's, a quaint central village, and a plentiful supply of fresh fish and shellfish, including the world famous Wellfleet oyster. The public beaches - ocean, bay, and pond - are beautiful and not crowded like other parts of Cape Cod.
