With the number of times we've been here to visit, we've walked across the causeway at least once on each trip. So I couldn't tell you how many times we've done it and we will absolutely continue to do so in the future as well. It is a great little expedition to take anytime you get the chance. If you...

The light is fantastic for photos and it is not too hot. It is very exposed so suntan lotion is a must. Not suitable for small children but our teens loved it and walked it barefoot. However, if you have good footwear, it is much more appropriate. We didn't have time to explore much on the other side but the... More

never saw an attraction quite like this, hike over giant boulders through the water to reach the tiny sliver of land at the tip of the cape, then if you are daring continue your hike to the other side of the tip to see two lighthouses and mostly deserted sandy beach. the thing is that there is very high potential...

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
