Truthfully, there no 'bad' choice for a beach in all of Wellfleet. All are 'family' friendly, great places to meet and greet folks. There is just something wonderful about watching the ocean, ebb and flow; almost mesmerizing, so to speak. The smell of the salt air and the sound of the water just about puts one in 'another world' for... More

The sweeping dunes down to the beach, a platform just right for small ceremonies, the waves crashing below what more could you want for the perfect outdoor venue!

Marconi, Cahoon's Hollow, Newcomb Hollow and Nauset are all fantastic beaches. The water is icy cold even in August and the waves are usually great. Parking is dicey in the summer so go early (or go in the late afternoon; sunsets are terrific.) The Cape is at its very best in the fall but May and June can be nice.... More

Yikes - Marconi Station has disappeared down the dunes. Gone forever because of erosion. And then came the government shut down. Locals overdid it by closing places that really didn't need to be closed - even through out vacationers from a motel that was in the National Seashore.

It was not a disappointment. It was beautifully clean and we could see for miles. I bet it gets very crowded during the summer months, but today at the end of September it was a glorious day to enjoy the beach,

We enjoyed the clean environment of this Federal Beach on our first two days. The last day on Thursday August 19th was a constant struggle with the numerous sand flies and sand crabs that bit us. It was a day that left us with bites and infected areas that lasted weeks afterwards. The area around the entrance and lifeguards was... More

Clean and clear. Beautiful day for the beach. Tide was out when we got there, and couldn't believe how far it comes in. Just wish a nice restaurant was closer...

Marconi is a world class beach. Clear refreshing water. Waves. Seals. Huge dunes. Epic beach that is worth a visit. Perhaps one of the best on the Cape. HUGE low tide. Walking beach, for miles and miles.

September water chilly but refreshing, and waves not too rough for swimming, beach wide and very pretty, facilities (shower/change room) more than adequate. Lots of parking (in September). A bit of a walk from parking to the beach, if one is carrying beach chairs, etc.
