The beach has lots of sandy area to set up on for a day in the sun. There is plenty of rom for all the beachgoers so that you don't feel crowed and on top of each other. The beach area and water ere clean. Parking was plentiful and there were places to lock bikes up. I only wish there... More

I read review after review of folks annoyed with crowds, traffic, lines and parking costs. You know that if you going during Summer months you have by default signed up for the insanity. We went to the Cape 1 day after Labor Day and enjoyed a week free of crowds, traffic and never paid for beach permits or parking. It... More

Marconi beach is historical, beautiful and peaceful. It's a great place to watch seals, and read a book. There is plenty of parking space even on busy days, and it's also easily accessible from the Cape Cod bike path. Facilities are clean, and well maintained.

Note: there is a day use fee here just like all the others. You can park right at the beach and no tram schedule hanging over your heads all day like at CG. It is not a long walk from the car to the large steps down the dune and then a good wide beach with waves. There is a... More

Great beach. Good place to go body surfing. Be careful of seals and sharks. No snack bar so bring your own food:(

Seals and surfers as well as sunbathers and summer readers seem to enjoy this beautiful beach. Easy to get to, and if you have Golden Passport, very inexpensive to visit. Big lot, but it does get filled on nice days, best to go late in the afternoon, less crowded and the light is amazing. This beach, as all the beaches... More

When the surf is coming in the waves are the best for body surfing or boarding. Lots of room for placing chairs, etc. Easy to drop off the family and join them after parking. Lifeguards are very friendly and helpful. If you want to fly a kite or throw a frizbee there is plenty of room by going right as... More
