  • I drove all the way out there to find a lighthouse and just found a house. I would say skip it except for the beautiful drive through lovely forests to get there. I've not seen such beauty in a very l...  more »

  • If you go in summer, as the hundreds of parking places attest to, the place is undoubtedly filled to the gills with beach goers. However, off-season, you practically have the entire beach front to you...  more »

  • Loved this! We walked on a trail from the bike path (not down the beach) as recommended by the visitors center and it was gorgeous!! We didn't go all the way to the lighthouse but close enough for great views of it in such a lovely landscape! Was about 2.5 to 3 miles round trip hike. My favorite thing we did during our day in Provincetown I highly recommend.
  • One of the best places to visit while in Provincetown to get away from cheap souvernirs and the tourist crowds in town
  • Requires permitted off road vehicle to access or a long treck through the dunes. No electricity or cell phone service. Lighthouse is kept by a non profit organization in which volunteers stay in the cottage.
  • How I miss Cape Cod and the Islands!! I moved from there to Dallas, TX in 1990 and I have been landlocked ever since... take me home, Cape Cod and all your glory!
  • Everyday as we drive bye to go to the beach I think "! love this lighthouse" but it's in Provincetown not North Truro . You will need an over sand vehicle & a permit to get to it as it's a long, hot walk to get there.
