More About Provincetown
There are more than 30 miles of beaches in Provincetown, with two lifeguarded beaches—Herring Cove, which has calm waters, and Race Point, with its long breakers. Miles of paved walking and biking trails along the National Seashore provide visitors with views of ponds, cranberry bogs, and forests of small pines.
The waters around Provincetown are home to three species of whales—the fin, humpback, and right whale. Whale-watching boats leave regularly from MacMillan Pier and Fisherman's Wharf.
