It was off season when we stopped. No one was there which was nice. Can’t imagine what it would be like if it was busy. There’s a ton of parking though. The walk down to the beach is easy, and a little harder to get...More

Unfortunately we arrived at this stunning beach in the middle of a rain storm. Thank you Hurricane Florence! Having sheltered in Provincetown for the rest of the afternoon the rain cleared so on recommendation we decided to head back to the beach. Totally and utterly...More

Great sandy beach for mile. Facilities and Coast Guard Visitors Center close by. Can also get permits to drive onto beach

Loved it out there. Windy and surf. Seals right near the shore. Campers on the beach, but at a far distance. Wild experience.

The National Seashore beaches are so beautiful since they are mostly untouched, but this is one of the prettiest beaches I've been to. Much calmer than Nauset beach. We enjoyed hanging out here.

Awesome beach, never been to Race Point before. National Park area good on parking ticket lets you visit other beaches on same day no extra charge. Cool seeing RV's on beach and dogs in designated areas. Seals swimming in water

Most of the crowd is gone now and the beach is tranquil and peaceful. Beautiful sand and saw seals there. It’s a short trip from the dock (about ten minutes by cab for 8.00) and you can grab a bus for 3.00 if that suits...More

This is just a beautiful end of the Cape location. The waves lap on the shore as all sorts of fish and seals swim by. The park has wonderful bike and walking trails. And there is a nice gentle breeze by the shore.

Free, fun, and the usual required amenity. Get there early when it's hot as the locals fill up the parking lot fast. Wonderful views on a great beach.

There's something very special about Race Point Beach...perhaps its' seclusion? Perhaps because it's the last piece of land between the US and England? Knowing the whales are just off the coast and in their favorite playground of Stellwagen Bank....IDK, but I always feel very small...More

The parking was payable - $20 per day but you can go to all the beaches for that.

$20. per day is correct. There are other passes available that work out to be cheaper if you plan to visit the Nation Seashore beaches for 5 days or more. They are available at the entrance gate to the parking lot from the... More
