We walked the 1.2miles across the breakwater and the. The 1.5 mile to the lighthouse. It was well worth the walk. It's peaceful and lovely views back to P'Town. Thankfully the sun wasn't out so although it's a long walk there and back it wasn't exhausting. If you like walking I would recommend the walk. The breakwater can be slippy... More

We took a boat to the light house. Its located at a secluded beach. U can actually get there and stay for the day which I highly recommend. Com prepared with food and drinks. Watch the amazing seals swimming right by you.

The walk across breakwater path is fun, but do be careful. Have water while hiking out there and be prepared to walk on sand. There is poison ivy in the dunes and shrubs. The walk is relaxing with the sound of the waves. Pack light and with some goodies to enjoy relaxing out by long point. Amazing views of ptown... More

Set by an existing golf corse and a small museum and gift shop. The point offers spectacular views of the atlantic ocean. Original light house was moved back so as not to fall into the ocean. A bit of a walk to the point but well worth the views.

Personally I like to see lighthouses and have been known to go out of my way just to see one, but this lighthouse was a disappointment. You could not go inside and on the outside its not that spectacular either. The scenery around the lighthouse however is spectacular.

Take the shuttle over to essentially your own private island. What a beautiful experience. We also got to see large groups of seals in the water too.

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.
