This was the most beautiful beach we visited during our trip to the Cape. Gorgeous sand and very clean. The water was too cold to swim in, but the kids loved playing in the sand. We would definitely visit Race Point Beach again.

Sorry, not a beach person so I'm not a good one to review a beach. Sand everywhere. Try the pools at the hotels and get a drink on your chaise as well.

Race Point Beach is just another gorgeous beach along the Cape Cod National Seashore. We had no difficulty getting a parking spot on a Thursday afternoon and enjoyed strolling along the beach. The air was calm making it quite warm (though not the water!) and the beach stretches for miles in both directions. If you want to see the lighthouse... More

Race Point was our favourite beach. The quality of the light, the beautiful dunes and the tolerable water temperature made it our favourite afternoon destination. The sand is clean as is the beach itself.

If you are looking for a pristine beach with dunes that go for ever, beautiful water, and all the conveniences of the National Seashore Park then go to Race Point. If you have a National Park Pass and a senior, parking is free- just bring your card. There is surfing, wonderful walking, swimming, and easy access from Provincetown or Route... More

Beautiful site-seeing. The beach has high waves with cold water not that suitable for a swim. The sand is coarse, and has a layer of seaweed and plastic wraps. I also found a toothbrush, a fishy key chain, and other crap!

Always an enjoyable beach. Lots of kids are here though, so you might prefer Herring Cove. There is more sand at Race Point though. Not enough parking spaces at busy times.

We walked out on the old lighthouse access road. A long walk but interesting flora and fauna. It is a car accessible beach so not necessarily quiet.
