Beautiful beach with views and great waves for boogie boarding. Walk along the beach for miles as it is part of the National Seashore. Great for large groups as well. Lifeguards are experienced and are always on alert. Bonus is the bath house with bathrooms and outdoor showers and changing rooms.

Pleasant trip off route 6 to the parking area. Plenty of parking and adequate restroom facilities, several viewing points and nice beach area. Hiking trails meander through the scrub trees and plants life. Good opportunity to see Cape wildlife along the way

A spectacular beach at sunrise or sunset, with long rolling waves, beautiful and huge sand dunes, and an access drive through pine forests that is truly wonderful.

Great sand, long open stretches and worth the walk down the stairs. Water is cool this time of year but definitely worth the peace and quiet that you'll experience at low tide. This beach has a wonderful history and well worth the research at the NPS Visitor Center.

We were going to Provincetown and I seen the signs for Marconi beach. Since I'm a HAM operator I knew the importance of this site. It was raining and foggy so we didn't see much of the beach. There are observation decks that you can see up and down the beach from. The park office has a model of the... More

The water was 60-62 degrees end of August into September long weekend but it was hot and sunny so it was just perfect. There are restroom and... More

If you can make the stairs down, and then back up, to the beach you'll be on one of the most beautiful beaches on the east coast. Surfing is great and well as boggy boarding. Lots of room and great waves.

What CHF1954 said. Must have been there the same day. Glorious weather and just how I imagined the Cape Cod beaches to be! Be sure to pop along to the actual Marconi site too! No parking fees after Labor Day either!
