We hiked the breakwater to this ultimate 'tip' of Cape Cod without realizing it was almost 5 miles from our hotel, but it was worth the extra effort. Saw seals in the clear blue water, looked at the light-houses (which sound an alarm every 10 seconds FYI) and discovered there is a ferry back to the wharf every hour between... More

My daughter (age 17) and I walked the Breakwater wall and the sandy beach at low tide to get out to the Lighthouse, it took us about 2 hours, of course we were exploring the beaches along the way so that slowed down our trip out the Lighthouse. When we got there we went and looked at the lighthouse close-up... More

What else an I say except it was the most magical day of my life. So very beautiful, and may I suggest Doggone Sailing Charters, if you should decide you want to take full advantage of the sunset, the lighthouse, the water and an excellent experience in P'town!

My husband and I walked naked from Herring Cove Beach in June when there was hardly a soul around. The few people we did encounter were also naked and they were very friendly - birds of a feather. This is nature as it was meant to be: no artifices, no pretenses, no hiding behind the veneer of puritanical convention. As... More

Couldn't ask for a better beach - especially for fisherman like me - I fly fish and I always have caught fish here. Take the water taxi one-way and walk back (~2.5 mile hike) if in reasonable shape - try to time the walk back so it's not high tide!

After a couple hour hike across the breakwater, over the dunes and around the tip of the cape we finally made it to long point light house. It was totally worth the time hiking the whole way we found so many treasures along the way and enjoyed breath taking views all while being on the most beautiful beach with no... More

Long Point is the most remote of Provincetown's three lighthouse. Looking at a map of Cape Cod it is at the tip of the curl. The hike out is a bit of a challenge as it requires hiking the breakwater and then a good deal of beach. Comfortable footwear, drinks and snacks are a must! The breakwater itself is a... More

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
