We stopped here at the recommendation of a park ranger in Ptown. We stopped to see one of the most beautiful beaches in the Cape. Would def recommend anyone to check this place out.

Every visit to the Cape we like to visit the Marconi Beach area. Not the beach itself but a little side area where the beach gets it's name. This is the place where the Marconi station stood. Sadly, most has disappeared as the ocean constantly eats away at the shoreline. Once a replica of the transmitting station stood showing what... More

We visited on an overcast day. I imagine this place is packed when it's sunny, but on our day the parking lot was about 1/3 full. The beach was amazing and the waves were big! My 4 year old went into panic mode when he fell down in knee deep water, totally convinced he was going to get sucked out... More

Marconi Beach is a wonderful, clean Atlantic beach. Unlike the National Seashore beaches higher on the Cape, Marconi does not fill up quickly. If you get there before 2 PM you can usually get in. Even if the road sign says full, drive up as people are going in and out all the time. The toilet and shower facilities are... More

Easy to access and park. Not really much to see, unfortunately. Beautiful beach and a few postings. I was not very impressed - but was happy to see it there. Dogs not allowed

$15 is a small price to pay for a day at Marconi Beach. Plus the fact if you go early you can use your pass at other National Seashore Beaches the same day. First the facilities. Outside showers to rinse the beach off of you. Foot showers just to clean off your feet and sandals. Separate changing and restrooms. ALL... More

This beach is very clean and has bathhouses, and most important a nice stairway down to the beach and has plenty of parking.This beach is off the bike trail and has a bike rack for our bikes!!The dunes are huge and you can see sealions pop-up in the...

An amazing beach - it has beautiful sand dunes and and endless beach as far as the eye can see. I wouldn't recommend it for swimming with little ones because it is quite wavy but it is a must see for sure!
