You can sometimes see whales, seals, and rarer birds off this beach. Beautiful big, unspoiled beach.

My friends and I had a marvelous day at the beach here. It was not crowded at all. The facilities are fine and there was ample parking.

Great beach to just hang out and watch for whales and seals. We saw many whale spouts in the distance. It would be a good idea to bring binoculars.

It would be quite a long walk from Provincetown. You are better off driving there or taking the local bus and then walking along the beach when you got there. You can also rent bikes to get there.
