The Beaches of Wells
There are 7 miles of oceanfront in the town of Wells. Much of it is sandy beach only, which delights the sunbathers. Also along the coast are rocky ridges and tidal pools which are so interesting to young people, whether they are little and play in the warm puddles around the large rocks, or are older youngsters who enjoy hunting marine life among the ledges. Very fine white sand comprises Wells' beaches which are wide and flat, providing areas for walking, running, or sand castle building. Life guards are on duty for your protection.
The ocean is fascinating at any time of the year. It can be many colors blue, green, gray, or white in its foam. It can be peaceful and calm with the little waves that lap the beach; or it can be crashing and roaring in a winter storm. There are a number of public parking areas which can be found on area maps. There is a nominal fee for parking to cover the costs of lifeguards and beach cleaning. Permits for parking are available at at the Municipal Building located on Route 109 West.
