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!

Race Point is a very beautiful beach that is great for spending time with friends, family, or by yourself. It is a great place to visit when in Provincetown and you will not be disappointed, especially if you enjoy beautiful beaches, great scenery, and relaxing.

This is a great beach with golden sands. The facilities are also very good with changing facilities and toilets. There are no shops on site so make sure you have food and everything you need...it is remote! You can see whales breaching from this beach and we also saw some sea lions. Trucks are also allowed on the beach but... More
