“Race Point Lighthouse - tour was fantastic, with stunning views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

This was our 3rd tour of Race Point Light on Mariner's Day. The tour started with a 20 minute ride through sand dunes, courtesy of volunteers from the Lighthouse Foundation. The free tour included: guided tours of the lighthouse, keeper's home, and the recently renovated whistle house. Volunteer Guides were friendly and knowledgeable. Refreshments were provided. There are countless photo opportunities.

We brought two guests, new to this experience, and they enjoyed the day as much as we did.

“Beautiful beach!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Our favorite spot in P-town. We kayaked over through P-town Harbor but there is also a ferry shuttle that runs there. We paddled over-about 1.75 miles each way and saw several seals along the shore area. Gorgeous beach and shoreline with a lighthouse.
