Rent a bicycle, pack your lunch and sunscreen and head off along the lovely cycling path to Race Point Beach. Beautiful! Go early before the crowds gather.

Not too many places on the East Coast where you can see a sunset. Really nice here, and the throngs do come just for this. But it is a big beach, big parking lot, has restrooms, showers, changing area if you've been here all day, so stay for the show at sunset. Or make sure to give yourself some time... More

Had a great time at Race Point beach, only thing is its a long walk to get to the water, but not crowded at all. A definite if you plan on going into Provincetown afterwards. Also, visit the Rescue Station to learn how the history of the life saving crews, that recused sailors from ships that wrecked on the Cape... More

Shared a beach bonfire with some friends and watched pods of seals play right off the beach. Only place on the east coast where the sun sets over the water. Outstanding sunset. A bit of hike to the rest rooms, but absolutely beautiful.

Really nice beach with a beautiful view all around. We actually saw seals and whales in the water. Get there early to pick out the perfect spot.

Well, the beach is mostly rocks, which is fairly typical, but the vistas are nice. Pretty buggy this trip.

Beach was very big and clean with plenty of room for all. Water was cold at 63 degrees but I ventured in after seeing numerous beach goers in the water and enjoying it. I was there during high tide and saw seals making their way up and down the beach looking for food. Looking from left to right there was... More

We started out the day with a visit to the local hardware store to get the required supplies. Once registered, we lowered the air in our tires and headed out onto the dunes. The sky was bright blue without a cloud. We drove up to the end, turned around and found a perfect spot to sit for the day. Being... More

Best beach of the area. Do not waste your time in the other option, Herring Cove beach. My kids enjoyed playing and swimming. Water clear and clean. Only 5 minutes driving from Provincetown , very convenient to grab some food. I really recommend this place, especially for families with kids. I still remember my last bath, the water was freezing!!!!
