Not as close as Herring Cove, but much nicer. Soft sand and great views out to the Atlantic. Water is crystal clear. Saw schools of minnows and pods of sea lions swimming by. A must place to enjoy the sunset.

Race Point is a breathtakingly beautiful beach. The day I was there, several whale watching boats were parked right in front of me and I watched whales breaching and blowing water out of their blow holes. It was an amazing sight. I wish I had...More

We love going here. Changing rooms, showers to rinse and bathrooms make it very convenient. Decent length walk to the beach but matting on walkway makes it easier. We bring a small cooler with snacks as there are no food options.

We mostly come out here to fish and drive our 4x4 on the sand, but it's hard to find a more stunningly gorgeous spot, particularly at sunset. Folks can park in the lot and walk, and the parking is free. I can only think Dr....More

The beach is nice. Admission is $20.00 or use a National parks pass. It is also a great place to watch sunset.

I think it is a bit early for the blue mat. It would probably be better to wait until May 15 or so. There are two places I think the mat may be placed, one is behind the toilets and changing building where there is a... More

You do need a saltwater license. Rangers are not always helpful, especially the seasonal ones. You will pass Blackbeard's Bait and Tackle in Eastham on your way to PTown. Stop in and ask Paul what they 're catching and what... More
