This beach is great. Awesome view and clean beach. If The Old Harbor Museum is open at the beach then you must check it out. It is incredible.

Absolutely loved this beach! Have never seen a beach so lovely. Whitest sand ever and very clean. It was so quiet it felt like we were there ourselves. Lots of parking available and toilets. Cant wait to go back!

Great looking Beach; unfortunately visiting during Hurrican Jose that brings a lot of water. Would have loved to go for a walk.

We were here in the off-season, after Labor Day. Parking was free and the beach not too crowded. The sunset was absolutely gorgeous, and this long beach affords beautiful panoramic pictures of the sand and ocean. This is a great place to relax and watch...More

Historic life saving museum used prior to the US Coast Guard. The museum is total open to the public..sleeping areas, dining etc. The Park Service guide was very friendly and informative. The beach was beautiful.

Spent the day on this lovely sandy beach. Sea was a little cold but waves were great. Sea lions swimming in the sea just by breaking waves.

My husband and I cycled to the beach from Provincetown. It's simply beautiful. Such a large beach with views that are spectacular. Bring drinks and lunch, there are no cafes! Highly recommended.

Race Point has excellent views. Looks like they had some beach erosion and part of the parking lot washed away. Cones and construction here. Perfect for bicycles though. Bathrooms in need of a makeover. Go for the views.

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
