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

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.

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!

Beautiful day in September, sunny, great waves. We saw seals bobbing in the surf, and a shark! We picked up a few shells and lots of neat rocks. Great beach for walking or just sitting and watching the waves. Let the ocean breezes blow your cares away! Also, no beach fee on the day we were there.
