Taking the Flyer's water shuttle from MacMillan wharf is worth it. Long Point lighthouse is small and you can't go inside but it's cute and the beach it's on is not very big, but it's pretty & never crowded. You also get nice views of Provincetown from the beach. It costs $15 round trip, only takes 20 min each way,... More

We took the 10am shuttle over and spent a couple of hours exploring the area. Loved the lighthouse and the scenery and enjoyed watching the seals in the water. Very nice spot for a quiet beach experience. Take your camera and take pictures of the lighthouse.

We have done this hike for years- we take the shuttle from flyers ($10 pp one way) -walk the outer beach to the jetty and hike the jetty back, about 1 1/2 miles beach and again on jetty = about 3 miles. The shuttle also offers rt service $15pp- designated pickup times.

We took the water shuttle from MacMillian Pier (also picks up at Flyer's in the West End). Worth the trip to the end of the growing spit to see the lighthouse and enjoy the beach. The beach is very rocky, a result of the littoral processes taking place, but has great views and the water is relatively warm in the... More

I love this place, it's got lots of beach and not a lot of people. Even if there are you can hike a few minutes and be on your own. You can get there a few ways. You can take a water taxi, you can kayak, or you can hike. There's great swimming off the bayside beach and there is... More

This is a remote part of Provincetown. It may be accessible only by 4WD vehicles like the one I drove back in 1964.

I read about Long Point before heading to Provincetown, but didn't think we wanted to make the commitment to hike out and back. Walking down the boardwalk, we saw the shuttle that went to Long Point and decided to hop it for a round trip. A round trip ticket was $15, one way is $10. Ride was about 20 min.... More

My partner and I love going out to Long Point...the very tip of Massachusetts. . .which we always try to visit when we go to P-Town. We usually get there by taking the levy of rocks by the P-Town Hotel. However, we had the best time during very low tide and walking across where the water usually is. You have... More

Walked out on large boulders for a about 30 minutes to light house. Make sure of high tide schedule before going.

Sailed here and anchored for a couple of days at Long Point. Really beautiful spot for a walk or read on the beach, great views, and fantastic light on the lighthouse sides as the sun rises and sets.
