stopped at Marconi beach for a few hours in the afternoon, very striking view. Nice bathroom and dressing area. Well, this is the only public beach with a dressing area I ever visited. but there are annoying flies that stung people. kids had a lot of fun playing sand and watching the surfers.

We decided to go to marconi beach since we heard there were better waves for the kids to boogie board. I guess if you can get out past the tons of rocks smashing your legs it would be ok. There were a few seals around the area in front of us. I was leery about that because of sharks. I... More

This was where we went because the other beaches Coast Guard Beach and Nauset Light Beach in Eastham were full by 10AM. Very nice beach. To get to the beach you need to walk down the stairs over the Dune. Great beach. Only thing I didn't like was at high tide the stones in the water were thrashing back and... More

Once you walk down to the beach its beautiful but before you do visit Marconi's place where telecommunications all started!

We picked this beach because we could bring our dog. They are allowed past the red flags on either side of the beach. The beach itself was really crowded but you can find a nice spot if you get there early enough. Also there is plenty of room past the red flags - there just aren't any lifeguards. There are... More

We spend an afternoon at Marconi Beach while visiting Cape Cod August 2015. We found the stairs to this beach a little treacherous. It was difficult getting up and down the stairs to the beach. There was very little beach to spread out on when the tide came in. The ocean was a little rough there but enjoyable just the... More

I loved this beach! Yes it was rocky but it is a New England beach. The beach is clean with soft sand and plenty of room to spread out. The parking lot is large and the view is terrific. Only drawback- the restrooms by the end of the day can be nasty.

My son and husband take surfing lessons from a private provider at this beach. The beach is wonderful and is truly a special place. Large dunes, big waves and decent facilities. Great views from the top of the stairs that lead down to the beach. Large beach and great for long walks. Beach can be very busy. But the crowds... More

The edge of the continent, waves all the way from Portugal. Go in October for the solitude and the last reprise of Summer
