The view from this beach is very beautiful at sunset. I love this beach because you can pull right up and not get out of the car if you wish. If you want to swim I would stick with Race point, much less rocky! Since they finished the new facilities and now have a place to buy food and a... More

The beach is long and during high tide it comes close to parking lot. The view of light house at the end is great.

I visited in mid-October, traveling solo on vacation. I was staying in Provincetown and had a rental car, so I set out to follow my map and explore the beaches. Herring Cove Beach was so easy to find...just go to the end of Bradford Street, take a right and within a couple of miles you are in the Cape Cod... More

Easy to get to, you can pull right up to the beach and you don't have to get out of your vehicle if you don't wish. Nice wide beach with great sunset location. Highly recommend.

This is the best place in Provincetown to view the sunset. Plenty of parking adjacent to the beach and mere steps from the water.

You can have the beach practically all to yourself off season. Just a few beach combers and people fishing were around when we were there in October. Beautiful.

We were here on August 21st, 2016. This is a really nice beach if you're going to P-Town for the day. The museum, the beach and the facilities are clean and top-notch. It is a bit crowded, however, they allow dogs on the beach which is also very family friendly.
