A nice slope on the beach makes it easy to find a comply spot to settle down and relax. Second the ride: We rented bikes in town at Arnold's and rode over the hills to the beach after... More

Got to this beach right after a storm; for awhile, we were the only ones on the beach. Saw a seal playing in the water and following us for a bit. Picked up some sea glass and multicolored stones and even a complete huge clam shell.

Catch the sunset, but make sure to bring a sweater. Best place for sun bathing and swimming as well.

Plenty of space to spread out. Clothing optional is not encouraged but not prohibited either. Just keep your eyes open for the ranger. Bring your own food and refreshments. Plastic bottles please, not glass. Try not to carry to much as it will be heavier leaving then arriving. A lot of room to walk the shore and a good chance... More

Clean beaches, lots of shops and friendly people. Topped by views of the sea you will remember forever.

If you're looking for old time Cape Cod this is the beach for you. Nestled in the dunes, Race Point beach is an ideal location to relax, watch some seals, and maybe catch a wave. We took the bike trail after renting bikes from Gale Force Bikes and took a break on the beach (no payment if riding or walking... More

Scenery was to die for, but hard walking on sand if not at low tied. Too soft, especially if you are carrying a lot of stuff. Also, the cost of $20 to park was a bit much, but that includes getting onto beach.

Came back to this beach, after not seeing it for 10 years. Wish it had of been a nicer day. We didn't sit at the beach as it looked like rain, but I enjoyed collecting various coloured stones, and my hubby enjoyed a stroll. The water was calm, but I was wanting to see the crashing waves, that we had... More

Soft sand and shells, a lovely spot for just about everyone. Good for long beach walks, children playing, sunbathing. Long dunes, arch-ing horizon. Just enjoy biking, or walking but must pay to park.

Went in early June - a very private time to visit. The hike through the marshland is unbeatable with great scenery and birding. One of our favorite places in provincetown.
