The Provincetown Causeway is a great place walk to get to the outermost beaches at the tip of Cape Cod. It also offers some of the most beautiful views of Provincetown, the bay, the wetlands and beaches. Although it is uneven with the large boulders it's great exercise and the walk from the parking area at Provincetown in across the... More

My Girlfriend and I walked out on the causeway. If you walk to the end you end up on long point beach. It's quite the hike but when you get there you have a beautiful beach that is nearly empty of people!

We've been trying to find a spot to park up here for years - this year we finally got a spot during low tide. We didn't walk all the way over since we didn't have the proper footwear (I wouldn't recommend going in flip flops, it's a bit rough on the large boulders at times) but it was cool going... More

Just like the other reviewer said "it's just plain fun to walk on the rocks!" Be prepared to spend more time around this place, as there is plenty of places to walk around at the other end of the causeway, and the chances to view wild life. Secluded and quiet beaches, light houses.

Great fun walk but probably too dangerous for small children and definitely no good for those with mobility issues. That being said as long as you wear good shoes and avoid high tide this is a great free thing to do in the area. Stop and enjoy the views and keep an eye out for fish and ducks if you... More

Great walk across to the lighthouses. Fairly easy to negotiate but beware high tide. There are no signs warning that it gets cut off at high tide. If you are cut off the only way back is an extremely long route along the outer beach to Herring, then along the road. So, if you time it right, this is an... More

The causeway goes from the mainland out to the 'tip' of the Cape. When the tide is out there are plenty of pools to look in for little critters like hermit crabs and starfish. When the tide is in, it's deep enough to jump off the causeway for a refreshing swim, but be careful to find a spot where the... More

Wonderful shops, excellent food, and a buzz of activities for everyone. Have nothing but great memories of Cape Cod and Commercial Street. If I could make one suggestion, the town needs to do something about the 2 large water towers in town. There would be so many great pictures of P-Town, but every time you raise your camera for a...

A group of us parked our bikes and trekked out on the causeway. The rocks are uneven boulders, but very manageable in sneakers or a good walking shoe. You get a nice perspective of Provincetown from the point.

When I started going to P-town, there was no ferry across the harbor. If you wanted to get across, you needed to walk the breakers. I actually kind of hate that there is such easy access now, because walking the breakers in amazing. The views are stellar and when you finally reach the beach, you know you earned it. It... More
