Race Point Beach is a wonderful spot to relax, walk the beach, fly a kite or have a picnic. Sometimes you can even see whales spouting offshore.

Where else can you see such sealife from the dunes (Whales, seals, birds). Easy to get to. Small parking lot, but it doesn't always fill up. Nice, clean bathrooms. Long stretch of beach for long strolls.

Not sure if this was a cyclic event, but the beach had rotting dead small fish along the entire beach. The sand and beach otherwise appear to be great, but we only stayed an hour due to the stench and the water being cold

We drove to Race Point Beach on a beautifully sunny mid-October day and took a two and half hour long walk along this pristine beach. There were relatively few other tourists..... on no fewer than five occasions we saw seals swimming by less than 50...More

It would be quite a long walk from Provincetown. You are better off driving there or taking the local bus and then walking along the beach when you got there. You can also rent bikes to get there.
