Just go out to the tip of the Cape. Bucket list material. It's disorienting. You'll see seals. Maybe a shark or whale. Ships. Shells. Sea. Sand. Salt.

Wood End Lighthouse is view-able from Commercial street or can be reached by walking the breakwater . Get the US Lights app for directions and history.

We got the grand idea to walk the breakwater, then head to Long Point, and then to Wood End. And that was before we climbed Pilgrim Monument. After such an arduous trek, you can only imagine my glee that neither of these lighthouses are open...More

This is a wonderful walk-hike to the light house. It takes about 45 minutes walking the break-water and then 30 minutes to get to the light house and the beach. Wonderful trip and beautiful views.

This light was illuminated in 1872 to provide assistance on the approach to Provincetown Harbor. We did not get to go close to it but just observe it from a distance.

My boyfriend and I completed the breakwater walk. Then wanted to go to the lighthouse. It is quite a walk but totally worth it! It was awesome walking through all the dunes! The Lighthouse is closed to visitors but you can take pictures next to...More

Easiest to get to, compared to walk back from long point. The hike across the jetty is about 1 1/2 miles each way. Jetty is uneven, kids walk portions of it, some do more - I think its too difficult for kids the whole way
