Great huge beach, and you can see Whales!

This is a great big beach on the North Atlantic side of the Cape. If you have binoculars, you can see the whales jumping out where the whale-watch boats go. Otherwise it's pretty... read more

This is a great big beach on the North Atlantic side of the Cape. If you have binoculars, you can see the whales jumping out where the whale-watch boats go. Otherwise it's pretty quiet and sort of boring. Go to Herring Cove Beach for longer visits.

I like open air, long walks, bike rides, good food, historical, consigment stores. Meeting new people, traveling too and learn from what they saw.

The beach stretches for miles, there seems to be a section for everyone. You'll find family areas and places that are mostly gay. Find a place that is comfortable and enjoy a day at the beach. Heads up, if you go too far from the main parking area, know that there are no changing or bathrooms facilities.

This is a treasure. This area is kept in its natural state due to The US Park Service. There is no development and you can walk for miles and leave humanity behind. Come here at night and see the stars and all of your problems will be put in perspective. Please respect nature when you come here and stay off... More

This view of the Atlantic Ocean is at the end of the world. I walked so far away from the main beach area it felt like i could see the curvature of the earth. Made me think out of the universe we only exist a part of time so small that we will not be missed.

Fine white sand and gently-sloped sand dunes make this the place to sunbathe. The waves here are gentler than that of Herring Cove so wading in huge sea is more pleasant. Parking is $15 from mid-June. Stop by the Province Lands Visitor Center for panoramic views of Herring Cove and Race Point beaches.

We pulled in on a rotten day--snow, high winds and freezing temps. Even though we could leave the car because the cold and wiping sand, the views were just spectacular! You should not miss this spot on any visit to Provincetown!
