North-facing, so the water is colder than the West-facing beach (Herring Cove). Nice a wide and you can go for a long walk. We saw whales spouting in the distance.

Beautiful beach. Beautiful area. The bike/walking path is challenging enough. Especially if you are biking it. We went off season and had perfect weather.

The beach is beautiful wit sweeping views. Don't miss the opportunity to walk on the beach and the trails.

Its October. Not only are the beaches for the birds but I saw whales and seals from my watch area. Early morning the best.

Looks like one of the wildest areas you can visit. There is plenty of parking, a matted walkway to the beach and great views. There was rain shower moving in when we were there. With the increasing wind and darkening skies it became very atmospheric,...More

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.

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
