Provincetown Beaches – Atlantic & Cape Cod Bay Beaches

There aren’t that many beaches in town in Provincetown. The harbor beach that runs along Commercial Street is narrow at best and at high tide almost nonexistent. Race Point and Herring Cove however are a short bike ride or a good walk from town and they are two of the largest beaches on the Cape with the best facilities and the best parking.


  • Herring Cove Beach: Route 6 to end @ Province Lands Road, turn right, enormous parking lot, restaurant, and public toilets, Maintained by the National Park Service
  • Race Point Beach: Route 6 to Race Point Road at the airport, large parking lot, RV areas, public toilets, Maintained by the National Park Service
  • Harbor or Town Beach: Take Route 6 to Snail Road to Route 6A to Commercial Street, Downton P’Town along Commercial Street, the harbor, from East End @ the Harbor Hotel to McMillan Pier to the Provincetown Inn on the West End
  • Long Point Beach: Route 6 to Race Point Road or Province Lands Road to Race Point or Herring Cove Beach and take a hike out to the lighthouse, not fast but it’s an experience – about 3 miles
