Wellfleet Real Estate

Wellfleet is a coastal community located halfway between the “tip and elbow” of Cape Cod. At only two miles wide, Wellfleet marks the narrowest part of the Cape. Despite its width, the town is distinguished by pristine beaches on both the bay and Atlantic sides as well as a number of sparkling ponds. Approximately 70% of the land is protected, contributing to Wellfleet’s raw, natural beauty. Walkers and hikers delight in the MA Audubon trails as well as the Great Island hike.

Wellfleet Community Summary

Wellfleet is world famous for its briny and succulent oysters – the focus of the Wellfleet OysterFest held every October.  The name “Wellfleet” is variously thought to come from a brand of oyster popular in England in the late 1700s or from “Whale Fleet” after the whaling industry that drove the early economy.  Today bustling Wellfleet Harbor is home to sail boats, power boats as well as larger commercial vessels which deliver much of the fresh catch on the menus in local restaurants.
 
With the second largest concentration of art galleries on the Cape (Provincetown is the first), Wellfleet boasts a thriving arts community.  The Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theatre features live plays and performances while the Wellfleet Preservation Hall hosts cultural events year-round.  Residents and vacationers enjoy live bands at the Beachcomber on Cahoon Hollow Beach while families can catch a movie at one of America’s last drive-in movie theaters.
 
History buffs know that the first radio telegraph transmission from America to England took place in South Wellfleet in 1901-02 on what is now Marconi Beach.  In fact, the South Wellfleet station’s first call sign was “CC” for Cape Cod.
 
Wellfleet is bordered by Truro to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Eastham to the south, and Cape Cod Bay to the west.  Approximately 48 miles east of the Sagamore Bridge, Wellfleet is 100 miles southeast of Boston.
