A decent beach, lifesaving station was open for visits

It's not the world's biggest beach, and it's not the world's warmest ocean water. OK, the water was downright cold. But, we saw a seal and a whale from the beach. The lifesaving... read more

We just walked along the water here, and made a poor decision not to swim, but to swim instead at Herring Cove, which is not as nice in the water. Both are nice beaches to visit, but the clean water and sweeping beach of Race Point makes it more attractive for me.

We visited Race Point Beach - lovely beach. It was very windy and the waves/current was strong so we just walked along the ocean's edge.

What a nice beach, a place to visit even if you don't go in the water as the ocean is cold. We did see 2 seals in the ocean while we were there. Issues at this beach are that you have a long walk to the beach and there can be biting flies, so bring some bug spray. Despite the... More

A nice spot to stop by in the off season (we were here after Labor Day). I would imagine it can get crowded during the busy season but given our timing and the overcast weather, we basically had the place to ourselves!

It is a nice, quiet beach. I went off season so I can imagine in the summer it gets pretty busy. Take you binoculars and look out at the ocean. We saw numerous whale water spouts and could even see a whale jumping out of the water. I also like that people bring dogs on the beach.

A wonderful place to enjoy the marvelous Cape Cod sunsets. Easy to get to and very relaxing. The beach seems to just go on forever.

The Cape Cod National Seashore beaches are all wonderful wide beaches. Race Point is nearest to Ptown, ten minutes away. This is the beach to enjoy for a day together with Ptown's shops, restaurants, bars, or whale watches. With good weather, this is a classic Cape Cod day.

We took ferry from Boston and then bus to visitor centre before pleasant downhill walk to race point beach. It was a little windy during our visit but it is a very good beach, no shelter or kiosks for food/drinks etc and you will need to take your own chairs/rugs/sunshade. The bus back to Provincetown will pick up from the... More

Just a few days to get away, relax, eat some oysters and lobster and lay at the beach. We had it pretty much to ourselves on Saturday other than being guests at a wedding! Not intended but beautiful.. It was cloudy but warm. The beach is a bit rocky and on this day a bit dirty not doubt leftover from... More
