Beautiful National Seashore Beach. Very large beach with lifeguards and facilities. Great waves. Plenty of parking. This is a national preserve, if you are age 62 or older you can get a pass for $10.00 which is good for life and is accepted at any national park, beach anywhere. If you like the beach or if you enjoy viewing the... More

A beautiful beach that requires a bit of effort. Access to the beach itself requires going down a large staircase so this might not be the beach for people that have difficulty with stairs or have a lot to carry. Once you reach the bottom you will find a beautiful beach that is made private by the large sand wall... More

A historic beach and part of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Truly a natural piece of oceanfront with no commercial development. Make sure to bring EVERYTHING you need with you on your first/only trip down the cliff to the beach. Not recommended for toddlers or small children as there is usually a tough surf present. Beautiful vistas, cold refreshing water...great... More

Marconi is always a good choice when at the national seashore. When coast guard or nausea light are packed, this beach usually has parking and the long stretch of ocean is gorgeous! Highly recommend the longer drive to Marconi for a less crowded experience

If you want to see the beautiful, steep, rugged, windswept sand cliffs of the Cape Cod National Seashore, this is a great place to visit. I only wished I had more time to walk a few miles along the beach.

Beach was so rocky my feet were killing me. And the water is very cold. Parking was not too bad and not full on a late Saturday morning. Stairs are no too bad. No food.

The water is just wonderful here at Marconi. If you have someone over 60 in your group, stop in at National Seashore Welcome Center in Eastham and get your lifetime pass to the National Parks. Else, pay $15 to park. On a sunny weekend afternoon you can, rarely, arrive after the huge parking lot is full. There are showers and... More

This beach isbpart of the National Seashore. It is where Marconi laid the cable for the transatlantic transmission in the early 1900's. Not only is it steeped in history but it is a beautiful beach. It has trails to walk and a beautiful beach to enjoy. It is farther out than Coast Guard or Nauset. But like each beach on... More
