Beachcomber Wellfleet, Cape Cod, USA


The Beachcomber in Welfleet MA on Cape Cod is a secrete most locals would rather tourist didn't know about.
Located at Cahoon Hollow Beach National Seashore. The Comber as we call it is the only bar and restaurant on "THE BEACH". I mean a real surfers hangout on a beach.
This section of Cape Cod faces due east. This means that Cahoon Hollow gets some of the best waves for surfing on Cape Cod or any place on the east coast.
Night time the Beachcomber turns into a wild party. Surf music fills the air on most nights during the summer months. A favorite band is the Incredible Casuals. The Casuals also play Sunday afternoons. Sunday is the day to go to the Comber IMO.
The Beachcomber has a raw bar, kitchen, outdoor patio and direct access to what one could argue is the best beach in America. Bring your surf board if you go.
The Beachcomber is a little difficult to find, but worth it.
