Worth The Walk

This should be your best day ever, a picnic on the beach after a hike over the break water. What a fun afternoon you could have.

If you are in Provincetown, I would really recommend you do this hike, or just a part of it! We are big hike lovers, and this one is just really a neat experience! You walk on a rock path constructed in the water. Around you can see birds, and fish, and in places where there is low tide mussels and... More

The most amazing view of color available in MA on that bright sunny day, in my opinion. Hiking through untrailed terrain to the remotest part of our state to look out over the Atlantic Ocean without anyone around for at least a mile was really a spectacular journey. Took me four hours to do the round trip with a fair... More

This is a strenuous hike, flat terrain but walking through sand for several miles is hard work. The breakwater you take to get to the beach is a really interesting walk, also mostly flat but some rock scrambling is required. If you plan ahead,check for high tide, wear proper shoes, pack snacks and water and a first aid kit (the... More

Worth seeing every lighthouse on the Cape and this one is just as great as the next. No tours while we were there and an easy walking distance from the parking lot.

We visited the long point twice during our stay at Provincetown and both visits were excellent. Walking around this area is a feast for the eyes and gives you access to incredible nature and beauty. We were able to spot Minke whales from the coast and also came across a colony of grey seals near the point. Wonderful and calming... More

we always walk across the breakwater at low tide or mid tide. Take the trail across the dunes and look for seaglass in the lines of rocks.Walk left (water to your right) toward the lighthouse at the tip. In summer, Flyers' shuttle will arrive each hour and for $10 save you the hike back.

If you come here by foot, expect to walk MILES and some of it is over a tricky breakwater. But it's worth it to have an almost private beach to yourselves. The water was warm in early September and we had the beach to ourselves on a hot holiday weekend. Keep an eye on the tide so you don't have... More

Take the shuttle from Flyer's Wharf just West of the Boatslip. Get a sandwich @ Relish & have a great day on the beach. You can rent umbrellas & chairs on the boat so no need to lug that stuff around! Just bring a towel & some sunscreen. Swim with the seals! You are at the Tip of the Cape!... More

Long Point is the Literal Tip of the Cape. The Cape, being in large part a sand bar, shifts regularly on the granite base that is New England, but this place appears to be quite solid. The Cape is a Spiral that hooks around, with the last "arm" of the Cape forming Provincetown Harbor. Long Point is the end of... More
