  • You have to watch your step on the granite blocks that form the causeway out to Wood End and Long Point (the iconic "hook" at the tip of Cape Cod). You will pass fishermen and women, parents with chil...  more »
  • Not all over walked. Sure you need 45 minutes. Nice vantage point to Ptown. Not safe because there are still deep holes. Therefore, caution is advised.

  • Very busy seaside town at the end of Cape Cod. Quaint buildings with virtually predestination only access down Main Street. Plenty of variety shops and restaurants. Parking a bit of a night mare. Sugg...  more »

  • Great spot for seeing the bay and walking to the tip. A little rough in some areas, so if you're not fully mobile you might have some difficulty. The seagulls use the rocks to break open clams they find, so there's usually a nice layer of shells on the top as well. Walking the full distance can be a bit long, but worth it.
  • The West End Breakwater is occasionally called the Provincetown Causeway, but practically nobody knows it by its official name: the Long Point Dike. Completed in 1914, this 1.2-mile-long dike is comprised of 12,000+ granite boulders. It starts off as an easy walk from the West End Rotary, but don't underestimate its difficulty, which becomes progressively harder the further out you go. At extreme high tides, a portion of the breakwater gets submerged. While that looks harmless enough, do NOT attempt to cross -- dangerous currents can sweep you off your feet, tumbling you onto the rocks. To avoid becoming another rescued tourist, wait instead for the tide to subside. If you want to hit both lighthouses (Wood End & Long Point), plan on 5 hours. Best bet is to begin your trek two hours BEFORE low tide.
  • The causeway, at the shoreline adjacent to Pilgrim's Landing Park, does offer brilliant views of the bay. I would caution anyone who desires to walk across it to the lighthouse that it can be a perilous journey if you are not in shape and surefooted.
  • THE BEST and THE MOST serene spot in Cape Cod !!
  • I think walking is 2 km long breakwater, was about 40 minutes each way. But also not imply that what is on the other side, cross! Get that complacency.
