Attraction details
Reviewed 2 October 2016

This light was illuminated in 1872 to provide assistance on the approach to Provincetown Harbor. We did not get to go close to it but just observe it from a distance.

As most people writing reviews have said, this is a great activity. It's definitely NOT for young children as the walk is long and can be strenuous. You walk along a jetty, which is made up of uneven boulders. Make sure you go at low tide and make sure to wear sturdy she's/sneakers. You want to make sure you have a good foot hold or you could slip.

My boyfriend and I completed the breakwater walk. Then wanted to go to the lighthouse. It is quite a walk but totally worth it! It was awesome walking through all the dunes! The Lighthouse is closed to visitors but you can take pictures next to it! I enjoyed going to this lighthouse and would return such a cool area!

Easiest to get to, compared to walk back from long point. The hike across the jetty is about 1 1/2 miles each way. Jetty is uneven, kids walk portions of it, some do more - I think its too difficult for kids the whole way

The causeway is a bit of a trek, but it is beautiful and secluded. We climbed up into the lighthouse. Make sure you have good shoes and wear sunscreen.
