This is a gorgeous beach just a little further from town than Herring Cove. It's a great beach for families or anyone that doesn't want a "scene" at the beach. It is also an excellent beach to watch sunset. It's too far to walk from town, but you can drive, ride your bike or take the shuttle bus…
Thought to be one of the very best beaches on the Cape. Exemplary of all the National Seashore Park has to offer featuring dunes, lighthouses and an expansive outstretched sandy beach.
This is my personal favorite beach. The sand dunes are behind you and the open sea in front of you. They say if you sailed straight out you would reach Portugal ! There is a changing facility and public bathrooms. Pack enough food you'll want to stay all day.
Famously gorgeous beach at the tip of the Cape. If you are a biker, and you go to PTown, go by ferry from Plymouth with bikes or rent there, and bike out to Race Point. Fabulous.
Race point is an iconic National Seashore Beach in Provincetown, which is especially known for its sunsets and the picturesque coast guard station.

“You can't beat the views here! We don't go here for dinner very often, but we love to go for cocktails at around 4pm. We highly recommend the Tea-tini (but ask for it without a sugared rim).”

“Herring Cove is a really long beach with multiple sections separated by some long, fairly empty stretches. There is a parking lot at the Northwest end of the beach that gives easy access to the more family oriented area. From there if you walk a few minutes to the left, you'll find a small area with mostly girls. If you walk WAY down to the left you'll come to "Boy Beach". This section is usually really crowded during the summer and is just a lot of fun. Depending on the week (July 4th, Bear Week, etc.) a lot- sometimes even a majority- of the guys will be naked. There's no easy way to get to Boy Beach. Most people will ride their bikes and chain them to the fence along the road and then follow the path through the dunes and marsh. The walk takes about 20 minutes depending on the tides. Oh, you may need to wade through knee deep water part of the time if it is around high-tide. Also, the dunes can get pretty cruisy although there is zero privacy- definitely only good if you are comfortable with exhibitionism. There's no access to concessions, so bring your stuff with you.”

“The Provincetown Art Association and Museum is a nationally recognized, year-round cultural institution that fuses the creative energy of America’s oldest active art colony with the natural beauty of outer Cape Cod that has inspired artists for generations. PAAM was established in 1914 by a group of artists and townspeople to build a permanent collection of works by artists of outer Cape Cod, and to exhibit art that would allow for unification within the community. In 2014, PAAM celebrated its Centennial year, with programming and exhibitions that highlighted significant artists, artwork, and events that contributed to PAAM becoming the vital cultural institution it is today. Integral to the community comprising the Provincetown Art Colony, PAAM embodies the qualities that make Provincetown an enduring American center for the arts, and serves as Cape Cod’s most widely-attended art museum.”
