We have been lucky that there was neither tides nor rain involved so most of the walk was easy to manage. But I can see that people have struggled when the rocks turn wet. Dry version of it - do it and enjoy!

We decided to walk the breakwater on our last day before leaving. Be prepared it takes longer than you think - 2 hours round trip if you walk leisurely, stop to take photos (scenery is beautiful) walk to the end and then across the sand...More

This is a great way to "get away from it all" and enjoy some wonderful views as well. The Causeway is a brisk, 25 minute walk from the center of town. Walking across takes 30-45 minutes depending on how much one wants to look around....More

We refer to this as the breakwater not the causeway. This is a great hike anytime but a clear day will afford stunning views of the town and moors. It is roughly 1.25 miles each way. Though it may look easy that is deceiving. There...More

Had a wonderful time visiting Ptown. Great food, entertainment, beach and walks. We had a rental car but opted to drive, Uber, taxi and take the bus.

I love causeways. I also love byways and expressways. I'm not really much for bridge spans or lanes (who am I kidding, I love all that stuff).

The causeway is a must see place to add to your trip even though P-town is my least favorite town on the Cape. It's commercial, touristy and crammed with people. The causeway is the exact opposite of that. You can find it a mile out...More

Long Point is the stretch of sand that arches over Provincetown. It is visible from any spot on Commercial St. In the residential stretches of Commercial St, you'll see doorways with a mounted blue ceramic plate with a white clipper ship. These are the houses...More
