A great Cape Cod Beach

This is a must see beach on Cape Cod. The water is really cold and crisp and the beach is soft fine sand you will want to walk on for a while.

This is a great beach for walking, fishing, or relaxing but not so much for swimming. The water is ice cold all year round. It also gets deep very fast so not real good for kids or non swimmers. The views are awesome and many times you can spot whales in the distance.

Even though we spend are holiday mid Cape, we always have a visit to Race Point Beach. It's a long walk down to the water, but once there, it's a gorgeous beach to walk, you can walk for ever. We have been lucky enough to see whales off shore on more then one occasion. Ocean on one side and you... More

You can not get further into the Atlantic than Race Point. The beach is awesome, cool to cold depending on the wind and a real gem. Run by the Cape Cod National Seashore they offer a bathhouse with cold showers that aren't really that cold and a wonderful assortment of sun, sand and dunes to explore. Race Point is a... More

First-- it's the North Atlantic. If you're here in the summer and want to go swimming, brace yourself (or go over to Brewster, where it's warmer). This is a gorgeous beach for walking. Windy and cold in the winter, but beautiful in a basic, elemental way! The land falls away sharply maybe 50 feet offshore. I have stood on this... More

Cold dark winter sea. Worth a walk if not too windy. You may see a seal or two, and in the spring a whale.

Visited at the start of June while it was still too cold for a swim or tan, but couldn't miss it. As soon as I arrived, saw 6 adorable seals swimming close to the shore! However, we were warned to keep away from them as they are usually closely followed but great white sharks. There are signs everywhere warning people... More
