Close to Ptown but not too crowded. Waves are generally gentler and the sand quite fine. I've spotted seals but have also heard of whale and porpoise sightings as well. Bike pathways nearby and facilities too.

Race Point Beach is magical and I love spending time here! I swam with the seals in the summer and enjoyed a picnic lunch in the fall after a bike ride. I was here in the winter and ran barefoot in the sand and the water! An amazingly exhilarating experience! A must-see and must-do for all beachlovers!

You have to make it out to see this beach at the end of the day. You will be so glad you did. It is heaven on earth and worth the ride.

While I have been coming to this beach for over 40 years there are some things one should know. The water seems to always be very cold despite the warm temps. Also, the past couple of years have seen Great White activity. So for basking in the sun it is a clean, well maintained facility, but I stay out of... More

Great place for a walk, watch the seals and enjoy a little solitude. Storm at sea created giant, dramatic waves! Take a long walk and just enjoy the sand and the water.

Beautiful beach at the tip of the Cape. It has a strong current. At certain times of the year you can see the whales right off shore. Visit this beach any time of the year.

Race Point Beach is beautiful, quiet (at least in December), sitting below massive dunes. It's quite long and you can walk for miles there. In the winter it's free to get in but the concession stand and restrooms are closed.

We love taking our dog to Race Point Beach in the offseason. It's a beautiful view and you have a good chance of seeing some seals out in the water!

Beautiful beach! The Sand Dunes are awesome. It was great to be the only two people on the whole beach (yes it's desolate in December). Would highly recommend visiting as it's a beautiful place to see.

I visited this place in cold winter. There are not many people so I love this place. The sunset is wonderful and sand shape is beautiful. The wind is little bit cold so I can not stay long time in here. But it was wonderful. If I have a chance to visit here again, I really want to come here... More
