Cold dark winter sea. Worth a walk if not too windy. You may see a seal or two, and in the spring a whale.

Visited at the start of June while it was still too cold for a swim or tan, but couldn't miss it. As soon as I arrived, saw 6 adorable seals swimming close to the shore!

Even in the winter months, Race Beach has spectacular sunsets that will warm your heart! It's windy and cold so bundle up...and yet it is sooooo worth the effort. The sunset will absolutely infiltrate your senses with joy and wonderment!

Fun to show to visitors who don't get to see the sea often. Sand, wind, water combine to instill wonder at coastal living.

No other sunset takes my breath away like Race Point. No place revives my soul like Race Point. I traveled a bit over 300 miles solo just to see it.
