America's Best Beach Bars
The Beachcomber, Wellfleet, MA
The Scene: For the last 50 years, hippies, rockers, and New Agers have flocked to this Cape Cod hangout, originally built in 1897 as the Cahoon Hollow U.S. Life Saving Station. It’s right on the dunes with a roofed deck open to the beach and a 45-foot bar. The Beachcomber is a family-friendly restaurant until 9 p.m., when it morphs into a club with live entertainment, anything from surf-rock to reggae to jazz.
Signature Drink: The Goombay Smash, spiced and coconut rum with pineapple and orange juice, $7.
