The winter storms destroyed 2/3 of the parking. Good luck with that. This summer access will be a nightmare unless you arrive by bicycle.

Love coming to the cape, this is a favorite beach of ours. Lovely to come for half a day and relax to the sound of waves and bask in the sun.

You have seen in on maps since a kid and when you come here, it brings back childhood memories. No matter what part of the world you come from. Ocean on both sides, sea life in front of you and the waves coming in at...More

Place to smell and hear the ocean. Impressed that the bathrooms were open, clean, and stocked. CT cannot do that on major highways.

If you come to Ptown then going to Race Point Beach is an absolute must. This is by far one of the most beautiful beaches. Spend some time in the Province Lands, and then go to Herring Cove Beach. It's a trip you'll always treasure!

I had been told this was a must-see when in Provincetown, and learned firsthand why. What a beautiful expansive beach. We spent the afternoon here following a touristy morning in Provincetown. The beach was somewhat crowded, but understandable given it was a beautiful August afternoon....More

Race Point Beach is a wonderful spot to relax, walk the beach, fly a kite or have a picnic. Sometimes you can even see whales spouting offshore.

The Seashore is the reason to go to Provincetown. Yes there's good food, art, entertainment. But the landscape will steal your heart and take your breath away. Make time for it! We've rented bikes (Very inexpensive at $12-15 for half a day) and explored the...More

Where else can you see such sealife from the dunes (Whales, seals, birds). Easy to get to. Small parking lot, but it doesn't always fill up. Nice, clean bathrooms. Long stretch of beach for long strolls.

The dunes, beach and ocean were beautiful but with wind chill below zero we didn’t last long. I would image it’s fantastic when warmer.

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.
