Long point is a looooong walk and for $10 you get a round trip ride on a boat out to the beach, not the best beach for swimming but seals swim around the island and really close to the shore and it was such an awesome experience! Definitely one of my favorite memories of this trip!

A gem! We had a great walk across the breakwater at low tide. Rain did not deter us on a 46 degree winter day. This is a perfect family activity at the road's end. In parts the granite is a bit challenging, so wear shoes with good traction. Probably not great for young kids. Our daughter is 10, and she... More

You can either take the 1.5 mile hike across the breakwater, tide permitting, or take a boat taxi from the shore to drop you off and pick you up at a very reasonable cost. Beautiful beach and old time lighthouse. Best views of Provicetown from here and definitely worth a visit.

Great place to hike to across the salt flats....especially at low tide! Climb over the dunes and then a good hike along the beach. Pretty scenic, long strolls along the beach and good swimming, although coolish! Move like a quick splash and escape to the beach and the sun and warmth....

Beautiful beach and unique light house. Kayaked over from Provincetown and beached the boat. Enjoyed the tranquil setting and sweet breeze.

We have traveled across the breakwater and hiked to Long Point beach several times. Unfortunately, this year we couldn't cross because we got there 1 hour before high tide, and the breakwater was impassible. The tide was rushing to fast for us to cross safely. In the past years, this wasn't a problem. If you go check the tides and... More

You must take the water taxi from McMillan Peer to Long Point Beach. It's quite and feels private- even on the weekends! The taxi is $15 round trip per person, but the experience is well worth it!

The rocks on the breakwater path are easier to walk on than they at first look. If you wear sneakers then do not go at high tide since a few rocks are covered. May be more interesting nearer low tide since you can then see the surrounding ocean bottom. Beautiful view. Brakwater path is almost a mile each way. Add... More

Back in the day, this was where the locals and the nude sunbathers might hike out across the breakwater to to get away from the crowds. Despite the ability to be taken out to the lighthouse by a water taxi, even today you will find few people on the beach. It's worth the hike, the view from the point back... More
