It's beautiful and majestic, and close to Provincetown for a walk around and dinner. You can walk and walk and walk, very relaxing.

Race Point Beach was one of three kid and pet friendly beaches recommended to us by U.S. Park Service rangers. It is a fabulous beach, very wide open and a great place to spot whales spouting just offshore.

Race Point beach is close to Provincetown on the Atlantic side of the Cape. The sand is very soft, which made crossing the dune to get to the beach a little difficult. The beach is very clean and was not too crowded the day we...More

Our family of four stopped to visit this beach after 5pm on a Thursday. Plenty of parking. Easy walk to the beach. One of the only beaches in the cape that doesn't require a climb down and back up. Crystal clear water. Loved the sand!!!

We happened to head out here at sunset and loved it. Managed to also see a bunch of seals swimming by which made it even better.

I would say this is the nicest beach in Cape Cod. Turquoise water, soft white sand, large beach... the downside: we went end of June and the water was so cold we weren't able to put our feet in the water. And there are also...More

Beaches in these parts can be rocky, thus needing foot covering. July's waters can be a bit cold; however, sunrises and sunsets can be magnificent.

This beach is beautiful and if you go to the Ranger you can get a pass and drive out onto the dunes. You could see whales and seals. The water is crystal clear a little chilly but it's fun to go in with your boogie...More

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
