Cape Cod National Seashore
Race Point Beach, one of the Cape Cod National Seashore beaches in Provincetown, has a wide swath of sand stretching far off into the distance around the point and Coast Guard station. Behind the beach are dunes. Bike trails lead off the parking lot. Some boats in view. Surfing allowed past protected area. Bugs were exceptionally annoying. Not raked. Nice big beach.

Race Point Beach is known for its rougher waters and beautiful landscape. A strong undertow makes it more difficult for swimmers, so it's best for inexperienced swimmers to stay in the shallow areas. This is also a spectacular beach for sunbathers due to its northern location - the sun shines directly on the sand all day. If feeling athletic after lounging on the beach all morning, Province Lands Bike Trail is nearby leads to fellow Seashore beach, Herring Cove.


Tips: 

The parking area doesn't usually fill in June and July. When it does, it'll be about one to two hours after Herring Cove. There are various restrictions and all vehicles must be inspected before the permit is granted.
