All of my dreams for this hike came true today. I would say, from the beginning and around the loop, it was about 5.3 miles. The temp was in the 60’s but was sunny and perfect! We not only saw seals, poking their heads out...More

The MOST beautiful place to watch the sunset! Especially in winter months! The walk over was long but it was well worth it!

Perfect beach to get away from the summer crowd, very quiet and peaceful. Beautiful scenery, it feel like you are in the middle of the ocean!

Went here for the first time in January during winter. We got there at sunset and didn't have enough time to walk across to the light house. It has a long jetty to walk across to get to it. It was cold and windy but...More

You can take the water taxi, a cool way to travel. Or you can walk across the boulder causeway: this is a challenging walk because the boulders do not make for an easy traversal. Or you can walk ALL the way around on the sandy...More

Small and just large enough to enjoy walking to the top and out on the walk out. Convenient to walk to with great scenery.

From Wood End Light, my husband and I walked to Long Point. We trekked between these points during low tide, so the sand was very hard-packed and easy to walk across. Once at Long Point Light, we stopped to take it all in: the blue...More

Walking on the breakwall to reach the tip takes about 45 minutes. It's not always easy going 'cause it's an uneven breakwall. But it's worth it for stunning views, less crowded beaches, swimming, fishing, or hanging. Pack a picnic and spend the day and walk...More

Not as many people spend the day out here, but it is a great place to get away! There is a stone jetty you can walk along (about 45 min.) from the PTown Inn... Then you walk along the beach to the light house. Many...More

It is a long distance to Long Point from Provincetown Harbor; I may have been there during high tide, but it didn't look walkable to me out to the island. I took the shuttle for $15 round trip.
