Gorgeous beach with spectacular views. The cliffs are fabulous! Sadly, the Marconi Site exhibit is gone which explained the history of the site. Google it for a treat!

On the anniversary of the National Seashore, we chose Marconi Beach! A great place to people/activity-watch.... families with little ones playing in the sand, young and old surfers trying their skills, colonies of seals (just off shore!) seeming to have conversation. And miles & miles...More

There is no place on the beach site itself to rent equipment. The main road that goes through Cape Cod, all the way up to Provincetown definitely has businesses for all that. I don't know any price information.
