A good walk on an uneven large boulder surface

A group of us parked our bikes and trekked out on the causeway. The rocks are uneven boulders, but very manageable in sneakers or a good walking shoe. You get a nice perspective... read more

Wonderful shops, excellent food, and a buzz of activities for everyone. Have nothing but great memories of Cape Cod and Commercial Street. If I could make one suggestion, the town needs to do something about the 2 large water towers in town. There would be so many great pictures of P-Town, but every time you raise your camera for a...

When I started going to P-town, there was no ferry across the harbor. If you wanted to get across, you needed to walk the breakers. I actually kind of hate that there is such easy access now, because walking the breakers in amazing. The views are stellar and when you finally reach the beach, you know you earned it. It... More

The causeway runs over a mile across the Bay from the end of Commercial street out to the very tip of the Cape. Wear sneakers or good sandles because you'll be rock hopping the entire way. The Causeway is built out of flat topped boulders laid out above the high tide. You step, step jump all the way across. A... More

I had read about this before coming to P-Town and was hoping I'd get to see it. Well, see it I did...as I crossed it twice (one way out, one way back). It was nerve-wracking at first trying to navigate between the stones but if you've played a lot of video games it's a little easier ;) Go early in... More

When looking for things to do in Provincetown I saw this and knew I wanted to do it. You don't have to be entirely fit to get across it, it does have a few, slightly challenging spots.. But just take your time, if you need to, and all should be fine. The seagulls were a bit funny. They seemed to... More

We found out about this hike from some locals having dinner at The Mews. One of the highlights of our week! It is a 3mile hike to the lighthouse and Herring Cove. Bring water and a towel if you plan to walk over to the beach, not that treacherous but recommend you wear athletic shoes and don't hike over after... More

This is a lovely walk across the creek to the lighthouse and onto the Sand bar Beach where you can then walk onto Herring Cove. It's a good way to get out to the beach without having to trudge through the sand or sea! The beach is quiet and the naked frolics in the Sanddunes can be fun too -... More

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...
