This excursion, a fine off-season trek, takes you from the hustle and bustle of Provincetown, across Provincetown Harbor via a dike, to the remote, windswept tip of Cape Cod, where Long Point Light stands sentinel. Along the way, you’ll also visit Wood End Light and stroll the sandy beach beside Cape Cod Bay. Bird-watching and plant study are just a few of the reasons to enjoy this walk, which should be reserved for a calm day. The dike and parts of the route are dangerous or impassible at high tide. Plan to start about two hours before low tide for Provincetown Harbor.
