Park at the rotary at Pilgrim's Landing. There are plenty of spots during the off-season.

Nice place to walk, but a bit of a challenge slogging through the sand

Great hike with amazing views, make sure to go while the tide is going out so you don't get stuck.

First mile over the breakwater requires some agility - not a lot, but some - from there, the open water side of the peninsula is solitary and beautiful. While swimming several seals popped up nearby. It was a unique experience. The water is crystal clear. The route is rated difficult because after the rocky breakwater, it's 4 miles of soft sand. When at last you return to solid ground, you feel like a gazelle. It's worth the drive out...definitely.

I'd call it more of a walk than a hike. Gorgeous and sandy.

Great hike. Awesome scenery. It depends what you are used to doing (not as hard as a mountain hike) I wouldn't rate as difficult. On a nice June day it would be a cool walk on the beach. We did it on 30 degree day with 40 mph winds. Loved the challenge!

Excellent hike! Although it is strenuous and definitely takes it's toll on your body, this hike provides stunning views of Cape Cod and the beaches and ocean. It is also very exciting to simply say you've hiked to the absolute tip of Cape Cod.
