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

My husband and I first accidentally landed on Long Point years ago by walking there, not really realizing where we were headed. We now go back every year for wonderful beach days with our kids; we take the water taxi, though! This is a low-key and natural experience. No bathrooms, no vendors, just beautiful beach. Perfect for rock hunting and... More

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
