There's a lot of stairs to climb down to (and back from!) the beach but it's an amazing place to be on a quiet morning, surrounded by shore birds and pounding surf.

We stopped at this beach on our drive down route 6 early Friday morning. The beach was completely empty and beautiful. We saw a bunch of seals swimming just offshore. The views of the ocean and sand dunes are beautiful! A must see on a trip to Cape Cod. The water was freezing, so we didn't go for a swim.

Great place to go if you have dogs. Just hike down a bit past the lifeguarded portion. The seals are fun to watch. They are huge!

We visited at 6:30pm, when the beach was lovely and quiet. Beautiful views. The real highlight was that there were lots of seals frolicking in the water, near the shore. Toilets and showers available.

This beach is located off route 6 in Wellfleet, MA. I visited there last week. The road leading in to the beach was well maintained, there is plenty of parking and a drop off/pick up area in case you have lots of beach gear. There are changing rooms and bathrooms here. They also have outdoor showers to rinse off. The... More

OMG cannot describe how gorgeous this beach is. Its so huge and wide open... it has the grandness of west coast beaches. The waves are perfect, big but not daunting. The water was pristine and refreshing. The dunes are truly majestic. Cannot say enough! Getting on the beach is easy. :) Getting off the beach is a bit of a... More

Marconi Beach has been one of the finest beaches on Cape Cod for decades! The water is cool and clean and the beach and dunes are iconic. In recent years, including this year, the beach has been crowded. It is still a "must visit" beach.

Patty at Eastham Chamber tourist office said Nauset would have parking so after a quick visit to the National Seashore visitor center we drove to Nauset to find it full with a sizeable line waiting to park. We then went to Marconi which has a huge lot. I had checked that it had changing rooms, showers, rest rooms, but wasn't... More
