Race Point Beach was nice. It's middle of the pack based on all the different beaches we visited on the Cape. I like the soft light sand. It's fun to get on your hands and knees and play with the sand. It's so soft, that...More

The beach is nice. Admission is $20.00 or use a National parks pass. It is also a great place to watch sunset.

Gorgeous beach, with miles of nice soft sand, cool sand dunes and cold water! The beach is very clean, the parking lot is descent size, The Race Point Light House is neat to see too.

Seals in the water. Lifeguards on duty. It is a beautiful place, at the tip of the cape. There are changing rooms and showers. The light and air and clouds are an artist's delight

Great beach with great views! This beach is larger and does not feel as crowded as some. The views here are great and you occasionally get to see whales or seals! The parking lot is a bit of a walk, so don't forget anything in...More

Run by the National Park Service Cape Cod National Seashore. $20 for a carload. Coming from NJ, wasn't deterred by the fee. A large, expansive beach - never felt overcrowded. A bit disappointed that there weren't any concession stands. No worries - just pack a...More

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
