Come down here in the evening as there are little arts and crafts huts where you can purchase little gifts, see the fishing boats and the whale watching boats. During the day you can visit the museum. Great views of Provincetown.

We went not planning this! Had flipflops and my purse, no sunblock or water not realizing what we were doing. Had a blast! 2 guys gave us water and sunblock. told us where to go and we couldnt have had more fun. We saw seals and the lighthouses were beautiful. Do not go with small children. My son is 10...

This was our first time walking on the causeway. My two teen boys loved it and bounded across no problem. My husband and I are in our late forties/early fifties and a bit overweight, so it was more challenging for us. I am a bit afraid of height also; some of the rocks require a leap from one to the...

it does take some balancing to navigate atop the rocks but it gets easy once you get used to the challenge. I walked the entire causeway and then through the dunes to the beach and back in about an hour. Highly recommended for the adventurous!

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
