What a great place with toilet facilities as well. Sand is golden and fine and not too cramped with people.

Absolutely gorgeous. You have to walk over the sand dunes from the parking lot to get to the beach, and once you're on the shore you can only see water, the dunes, and the grass. It's so beautiful. Because it's a bit of a walk from the parking, bring a cooler with everything you need. No bathrooms nearby either. The... More

We stopped off at Race Point beach near the end of the day which is a good time to go since the crowds had mostly left and it wasn't so hot. The one disappoint is that you are not actually at Race Point. I think Race Point is still a mile two from where you have to park and the... More

Great beach about a mile from the best bike path in the cape and close to downtown P town. Don't miss this beach! Bring your bikes & spend the day.

I live on Cape Cod and Race Point Beach is my favorite Cape beach. if you have 4x4 wheel drive, go to the National Park Service Ranger Station and get an over-sand permit ($50 for a week, $150/annual plus you need spare tire, tire gauge, square board and rope tow) to drive about 2 miles through the dunes to Race...

I got here probably too early in the morning to give it a fair review. There was hardly anyone there when we arrived and not a lot to see. We left my father at this beach and went on for our Ptown Whale Watch (highly recommended). My dad couldn't go on the ship because he suffers with seasickness and vertigo.... More

Very pleasant beach but very steep drop off at high tide. As with all Cape National Seashore beaches this had full bathhouse although a little worn. Sand very soft making walking difficult. Be sure to stop in and see the Life Saving Museum off to the right of the parking lot.
