Provincetown and Truro Cape Cod Nude Beaches

Long Nook

Going to the beach on Cape Cod offers so many choices.  There are the National Seashore beaches and the various town beaches, but without a beach sticker your options are limited. If you can make your way out to Long Point, at the very end of Provincetown, either by boat or by walking across the breakwater there is a beautiful unspoiled secluded beach and the opportunity to shed your clothes if the area is not tightly patrolled.Beach two

In previous blog posts I’ve talked about the clothing optional sections of Herring Cove /New Beach. The other place to visit is beautiful Long Nook in Truro. If you walk down the beach to the right, you’ll start to notice it has become clothing optional. During the summer season, you will need a beach sticker from Truro which you can buy if you are renting property for the week or month. Otherwise you could try bicycling there… Perhaps readers may have some other suggestions. Now when you do get to the beach of your choice, what book did you bring to read? I’m hoping you brought a copy of Remaining in Provincetown, the new mystery novel that everyone is talking about with all those almost familiar characters. Like us on Facebook. Currently on sale at the Provincetown Bookshop and online at a variety of sites in trade paperback and as an ebook. What’s your favorite beach?Beaches

Writing about the nature of Provincetown, Cape Cod

New state road

Once the dunes were covered with forests,” writes Mary Heaton Vorse (1874-1966) in her classic book about Provincetown entitled, Time and the Town, The early settlers cut them down and made their houses and vessels of them The old houses in Provincetown are made from timber cut here.”

Vorse first came to Provincetown in 1907 for a short vacation, ended up buying a house and staying on and off Cape Cod for the rest of her life.  She writes eloquently about many things including the sand dunes. “The dune walks. A great wind will lift them bodily.  A vast crater will appear where last year there was one. The wind piles up a mountain of sand and things may begin to grow upon its top. Then the mountain will be again leveled off. There is space here. There is an expanse that gives the illusion that the other side of the dunes is a great way off, as one feels in the West, looking over a great mesa.”  Time and the Town was published in 1942.
