We took the breakwater to the end of the spit of sand this lighthouse is on and had a great time discovering the seemingly never-ending beach on the other side. A great place for a romantic and adventurous picnic!

The green heads are usually active hear. Bring off and you'll have a great beach day away from the crowds without the fuss or long hikes.

Stayed in Cape Cod for a few days but I have to say kayaking out to the lighthouse was the highlight of our trip. We brought our own kayaks but saw many other people with rentals. The water was a bit choppy so if you aren't experienced you will probably find it a bit tiring. It took maybe a half... More

I spent several hours relaxing on Long Point on a beautiful June afternoon. The beach is very scenic with a lighthouse and a WWII memorial cross in the background. You can see Provincetown across the bay. The water is rather shallow for swimming, but great for splashing around and looking for shells and sea glass. There are beautifully colored pebbles... More

We rented kayaks from Provincetown Aquasports and kayaked across the harbor to long point beach. It was a great 30 min. paddle. but there are a lot of ferries and speed boats in and out of the harbor, so that can be a bit unnerving. There were many other kayakers out there on the water doing the same thing so... More

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
