Sitting at the furthest tip of Cape Cod, Herring Cove Beach is one of America’s best beaches. Because the entire beach faces west, it’s hard to find a better spot to watch Cape Cod’s spectacular sunsets if you’re staying at a hotel in Provincetown.
Choose a hotel near Herring Cove Beach that’s steeped in history. Stay in a 19th-century inn that used to belong to a sea captain, or book an elegant B&B in the heart of Provincetown. Beachfront resorts range from affordable two- and three-star hotels with outdoor pools and views of the coast. But you could also have a luxury stay in a hotel with a spa and direct access to a beach.
Herring Cove Beach is part of the 40-mile Cape Cod National Seashore. You can easily drive to Herring Cove Beach from your hotel, but the two car parks can get very busy, especially in August. The wide sandy beach is popular with picnicking Cape Cod families, as the waters are quite calm and part of the beach has a lifeguard on patrol.
You’ll find a few handy facilities on Herring Cove Beach, including a hot-dog stand. There’s also a shower and toilets. If you’ve hired bikes from your hotel, you can enjoy a leisurely ride along the cycle path that runs near Herring Cove Beach.
From Herring Cove Beach you’re only a short distance from Pilgrim Monument, which is America’s tallest all-granite structure. Climb the steps of the 252-foot tower for gorgeous views of Provincetown and the coast beyond. While you’re at the monument, pop into Provincetown Museum, which is at the foot of the tower and chronicles the history of the town and the arrival of the Mayflower Pilgrims.
During your stay in Provincetown, don’t miss the chance to go whale-watching, as there are many boat trips from Provincetown’s harbour. Watch the whales in action on an excursion to Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, a breeding ground during the summer for humpback whales.
