Just a very long sandy beech with nothing else around. Or at least when we visited in the end of September. Plenty of parking.

It was our first trip to Race Point Beach. Its a beautiful spot on the tip of Cape Cod. Amazing sunsets. The sand area is large. There is also an area where people can bring vehicles. It's worth checking out!

After all the years of coming to the Cape, we had never come to this beach. What a fabulous place! Gorgeous sand, plenty of parking, clean and a view that was spectacular.

My wife and I enjoyed a tour of Race Point beach and the dunes in a Chevy Suburban. We saw a flock of terns, some seals and wispy fog creeping over the dunes from the sea. The guide pointed out a hut where Betty Davis...More

This beach, park and bike trails are what weekends for made for. So load your picnic lunch and bikes in/on the car and have a great time. Truly great beach and dunes worthy of exploration by foot and bike.

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
