The ocean isn’t Provincetown’s only natural wonder. If you’re feeling more adventurous than just lying on a beach towel, try hiking, biking, boating or horseback-riding. Too often visitors miss out on experiencing the other side of Route 6. You’ll quickly agree that there’s nothing quite like the Province Lands anywhere else in the world. The vast panorama of dune, sea, and sky is breathtaking. Here is where Thoreau concluded his famous walk along the outer rim of Cape Cod, marveling at the rare beauty of this magical place. Here is where you can find quiet and solitude in the height of August. To paraphrase Thoreau, here you stand and put the rest of the world—with all its troubles and hostilities—behind you.
The Travel Channel has rated Provincetown’s beaches the sixth best in the country! Provincetown offers a wide variety of beaches, from Race Point’s dramatic sweep of tall dunes on the Atlantic Ocean to narrow Herring Cove, where ocean meets the bay. Don’t miss the beaches on Long Point—if you want a bit more seclusion from the summer hordes, trek across the breakwater and find a spot far removed from the crowds. It’s one of the most dramatic and beautiful walks you will ever take, crossing Provincetown Harbor on the gigantic rocks that prevent the fragile marshlands from being swallowed by the ocean.
