Ok, for perspective, I have been to beaches in Florida, California, Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Maybe other reviewers are comparing this beach to other beaches in the Cape Cod area? I don't know. The beach does have nice sand, but about two thirds of it were roped off for protection of an endangered bird species, which... More

Went to Race Point at 6 p.m. for dinner and a fire. You have to get a fire permit (which you can do by calling 3 days in advance). I called at 11 a.m. on Wednesday for Saturday, and got one of the two remaining permits--one was for Head of the Meadow (Truro), the other for Race Point. Note: no... More

The beach is great for walking and fun. The dunes are just beautiful. It is a scenic array for the eyes.

This beach is definitely worth the drive from wherever you are staying on the Cape. Clean, beautiful and not very crowded. Try it on a weekend when all of the other beach lots are full.

Race Point is one of our favorite beaches on the cape. It's not very busy and there is plenty of space to spread out away from other people. It is very laid back, chill, and clean. It's always fun to spot seals out on the water.

We spent a lovely few hours here, beach is clean and very peaceful. We had the added bonus of 14 seals swimming by at close quarters.

My family of 6 have spent one week in Cape Cod for the past 5 summers. Our favorite beach is Race Point Beach, just outside of Provincetown. We have a weekly vacation rental in West Yarmouth, which overlooks Lewis Bay. We will make the one hour trek to Race Point Beach at least 2-3 times each week because we love... More

Excellent beach, so much to see and do, water is great, a lot of parking, nice changing areas, men's bathrooms smells a lot, but wonderful beach. Mother nature at its best.

We spent a couple of hours at Race Point Beach today. The beach was very clean and the sand was very nice! There was a lifeguard on duty. The water was extremely cold but that didn't stop our two children from having an enjoyable swim!

We went on a sunset tour at Race Point Beach. It was just awe-inspiring. The gray seals were constantly swimming by in groups of 15 or so. We didn't swim, because we are from Georgia,and the water was COLD!
