Herring Cove is a gorgeous coastline that seems to be going as far as the eye can see. It’s immense and it’s beautiful and it’s consistently voted as one of the best beaches by no less an authority than The Travel Channel.Its best asset is the warmth and clarity of the water.
The lesbian section is on the left from of the last carpark, while even further to the left there is the male gay section. Even further on towards the Wood End Lighthouse there is the nude male section and the dunes cruising area.
As the area is managed by the Cape Cod National Seashore, nude sunbathing is theoretically forbidden but no one seems to mind or check; however if the police do come, nude bathers could be issued with a $50 spot fine.
There are no amenities in the gay part of the beach so be sure to bring drinking water.
You can reach the beach by car or on fot (about 30-40 min from Provincetown). Drive/walk about one mile west from Provincetown to the end of Route 6 where there are two car parks ($10 ticket). The gay end of the beach is on the left and beyond that there are sand dunes where clothing is very definitely optional.Last updated: 03-22-2014
