Amazing beach with views of seals and whales! You can actually see them from the beach. Great for walking. Water is pretty cold. They also reserve areas for campers, which is cool.

Not that I don't like South Beach, but the pristine, wild surf at Race Point puts one in tune with the ancient rhythms of the planet. Truly, on a... More

The long drive down the cape was worth it, but we would definitely start earlier in the day for future visits--because of the traffic.
