Race Point Beach, Provincetown

4.7
Find crystal clear waters, sweeping sand dunes, and pure white sand off the beaten track at Race Point Beach. The beach gets northern sun all day long, so it's popular with sunbathers. The shoreline drops off quickly so it may not be ideal for casual swimmers, but upside of this is that you may see sailboats or whales close to shore. The beach is prone to big surf, making it a favorite for surfers. Be aware, this area is known for strong riptides and undertow--only strong swimmers should attempt time in the water here.

  • Race Point is a wonderful beach in Ptown but there isn't wifi or internet but who cares about that when you're on a beach! The sand is clean and there isn't any trash on the beach.
  • Race Point ORV (drive on beach portion) is one of my favorite places to be. Gorgeous landscape, lots of beach and easily accessible after you've gotten a sticker and follow the rules in place ~ low & slow, clean up your trash, be respectful of the neighboring beach goers and sea life. It's amazing to be able to whale watch from the coast, so fortunate to experience this spectacular place year-after-year!
  • Stunning stunning stunning... !!! Absolutely the best of all the Federal Beaches in Cape Cod National Seashore. The beach perfect for sunset view on a clear day, the Herring Cove beach is good for day but Race Point Beach ought to be your best bet for sunset view.
  • It's a amazing and wonderful place. ....Me and my family love this place I see lots of birds and fish. ...so amazing this place beautiful. ....
  • Great Beach, plentiful bike and car parking and good changing and bathroom facilities. Also the museum has events so check the calendar.
