Wellfleet Information

About Wellfleet

Wellfleet is a small town just below the tip of the Cape Cod peninsula in Massachusetts.

Much of Wellfleet’s land is preserved and protected. The Cape Cod National Seashore, instated by President Kennedy, covers more than 60 percent of the land area. Freshwater ponds flourish in Wellfleet, in addition to wildlife sanctuaries and peaceful beaches.
