This is a great beach for taking long walks with beautiful sand dunes all around. Its a bit challenging for swimming as the water is ice cold all the time and gets deep very fast. Not a good beach for little kids as large waves are common.

Great spot to head out to for evening sunset. Watched seals and colours of sunset were spectacular. Would be great spit for beach day too

Visited here in February. Parked at the Race Point Beach lot, and walked the two miles to Race Point Lighthouse with the dogs. Hardly saw anyone - it was cold and the wind always blows so we had to bundled up. Best thing - just a huge expanse of unspoiled beach. You can walk for miles. No houses, no condos,... More

I have only been out to this beach in the off season but it is a special place. A part of the Cape that is definitely worth seeing. Stop at the National Seashore Visitors center on the way out and Herring Brook beach on your way into town.

Race Point is a well famous beach therefore we decided to make a drive over there. It was a very beautiful sunny day. My two teens enjoyed walking along the shore and took a lot of beautiful pictures.

A short drive from bustling Provincetown, Race Point is a beautiful beach with stunning dunes and blue ocean views; it's part of the National Seashore, so no development is allowed, making it the ideal spot for long walks anytime of year (or swimming in the summer).

This is one of the nicest beaches in ALL of America, just beautiful and untouched . The walk over the dune and down the hill will say all.

Winter wonderland around New Year's Eve. You'll be cold and windblown but so happy for the view and the dunes and the Cape magic that is there. Race Point makes you know you are at the Cape.

and we did that in 2008. Soft sand, pounding surf, walking and biking trails. Visitor center is closed during the winter but restrooms are available. Love this place!

On a clear night, the sunset here with the waves and the sea gulls and the pretty fences and grass is like something out of a movie. It's worth the wait to just relax and take it all in.
