So pretty! The beach goes on forever. The ocean is perfect! You can walk or drive. If you drive they have a huge parking lot.

We were on the Cape off season (early November). Stayed in a condo near near Provincetown. We like going to places when they are not crowded and you can see the area without much fuss and traffic. I do not really like crowds. Traveled to...More

For birders this is a great beach. We had great looks at Razorbills, Gannets, great Shearwaters and many more. And the birds are quite close in but it would have been better with a spotting scope.

Every year we purchase the annual off road pass. It’s fun to four wheel drive to the sections of beach open to the public. Certain times of the year the four wheel drive beach area shrinks because of the piping plovers. There are areas where...More

In late October my wife and I stopped at Race Point Beach and walked along it for a ways taking pictures of a seal, the tides, the beach area, the dunes, and Race Point Lighthouse. Beautiful beach area.

A great beach for walking, whale or seal watching. It’s a great place for beach combing, strolling and relaxing! If you like beaches you’ll love this one!

Race Point is a natural, gorgeous, unlittered, noncommercial beach. It is stunning. Often people run straight to the edge of the ocean to take it all in. It's a very special place.

Nice beach with restrooms and changing rooms. Lots of area for finding a quieter space I’d imagine in the summer months. No charge at this time of year so can’t comment on the normal pay to park rates.

I’ve been to many beaches up and down the East coast but none of them are quite as scenic as Race Point Beach...the dunes alone are worth the trip.

Race Point Beach is accessed from the Province Lands Visitor Center. It is a beautiful beach with ample parking, we were there in October and parking was free. My understanding is that if you have a National Park’s Senior Pass the parking fee is waived...More

The parking was payable - $20 per day but you can go to all the beaches for that.
