My wife and I took the water taxi from Ptown to Long Point for just an hour and it was practically deserted. We walked up to the lighthouse, took amazing pictures, and down to the beach on the other side. It was amazing and so peaceful. The lighthouse is wonderful as a backdrop. Some people bring their beach gear. We... More

Very relaxing beach where you can walk for about 6 miles and get to the end of the beach which turns into South Beach eventually. Soft sand although it can be a little rough on your feet due to the broken shells and dried grass sticking up. Since it stretches for miles you can always find a spot for just... More

This is a beautiful location to take in the sites of Cape Cod. A long walk out the breakwater into the ocean but worth it. Bring bottled water to drink and water for your pets.

One can walk there (several miles, including 3/4 mile along the breakwater), or one can get there by a 10 minute boat shuttle from Commercial street piers. Flyers Boat Rentals provides round trip shuttle service for $15. There is an old lighthouse, but the main attraction is the beach. Swimming in the water on the harbor side of the point... More

We walked across the rocks to get to the lighthouse. The walk across the rocks took about 45 minutes each way. Even wearing sneakers I was worried about slipping and falling on the rocks so it probably took me longer than others to get across. It was a beautiful view on the walk out to the lighthouse, and cool once... More

Take the pontoon boat leaves on the hour - the BEST way to beach in Provincetown. Skip the walking - take the boat!!

From the Provincetown end it does not look too far but it takes a good 45 minutes to get across the rock walkway to the beach on the other side - the effort is worth it. We went across in the late afternoon and the beach was virtually empty when we got there. On the way we saw all sorts... More

When you see that shape of MA, with the arm, the elbow, the fist, and the curl at the very end and tip, this is that spot. It is also a working lighthouse here. You can only get here by hiking over the Jetty, then onto the dunes to it, or by taking a boat shuttle, or by kayaking. Beach... More

My husband and I hiked the breakwater path and beach to Long Point. It was a great workout and we loved the views, and beach (where we ate our lunch). Round trip it took us about 2 hours (we took a longer route on the way to the lighthouse and hiked some of the dunes behind the actual beach). Overall,... More

My wife and I were in town last week. We have been visiting P town for nearly 10 years now 4-5 times a year. We have always wanted to make the trip out to the tip of the cape. A friend of ours who lives in town was nice enough to let us borrow his canoe. The long paddle out... More
