“gorgeous sunsets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

easy to get onto the beach for great sunset shots. The local magazine gives sunset times so you can make your way out there in time.

“Super Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

We were in Provincetown for 4 days in April, and went to Herring Beach every day to let the dogs run. I don't know how it is in season, but in April there was plenty of wide open spaces for the dogs to run. Beautiful, accessible beach.

“Windy on the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

nice to drive within 12 feet of the ocean with lots of parking. Sad to see the beach erosion over the winter. Dog friendly beach makes it inviting anyday.

“Beautiful, and right on the water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Worth a visit if you like the ocean and being able to get right next to it. The parking lot is on the beach so in the cold April wind we could easily view the ocean, the sunset and the wildlife from the car. Highly recommend.
