45-minutes one-way

The amazing stone causeway created a protected salt marshland. You can walk across the giant stones in about 45 minutes.

Most often called The Breakwater by locals, this spot offers recreation during high as well as low tides, and in-between. Beachfront sunbathing is best at mid tide, swimming at high tide and beach combing at low tide when the tidal flats are exposed. Fishing from The Breakwater seems best as the tide is becoming high, while the wetlands can best... More

I walk the breakwater every time I come to Provincetown, I love it. Please wear sensible shoes and respect where you are! If you fall, it is not easy to reach you. Exciting for age ten and up, the huge boulders become flatter and rougher the further out because fewer feet reach them. Poison ivy when you reach land again,... More

Excellent views of the Atlantic and Dunes. No crowds this time of year but seasonal stores were closed.

Ever have one of those experiences from your childhood that you like to revisit again and again? This is one of those for me. Walking this jetty at any time of the year can offer a unique view back to town and recharge your batteries. It will prove to you that there is so much more to Provincetown than walking... More

Everyone sees the warning about not swimming near seals due to the Great White sharks, but there's nothing warning you hat he incoming tide overflows the causeway in two spots both two thirds of the way out. However as long as you bear this in mind it's a must do! Beaches out there are fantastic & seals fun to watch.

Fascinating walk, but definitely a long one (an hour if you dawdle), and you need good shoes to traverse the uneven causeway. Delightful to watch the seagulls catch and break clam shells on the causeway. At the far end, its still quite a walk to the lighthouses. Delightful views back to P'Town.

I slipped and fell on the breakaway but the rocks were large enough that fortunately I didnt slip in the water! This is a must-do activity if you go to PTown--the causeway stretches so far out and the scenes are breathtaking.

Well worth a visit as the traffic island is the Pilgrims Arrival Point. Views to the north are good indicating the prospect off the tour round the dunes and coast..

this is really over a mile, so a problem for small children or small dogs. The rock steps could be fairly large at times; too much for short legs. Lots of broken shells on the rocks, so barefoot would also not work.
