Towering dunes, pounding shimmering waves, playful seals, friendly and capable life guards, good parking, restrooms, stairs to the beach. What more could one ask - except... read more

Towering dunes, pounding shimmering waves, playful seals, friendly and capable life guards, good parking, restrooms, stairs to the beach. What more could one ask - except, perhaps, warmer water (it was 57 when we visited!) . This became our go-to Atlantic side beach. Took long walks with our little KoJack each morning. Came back later in the day with the... More

I remember this beach from my childhood, and brought my daughter for the first time today - 40 years later! More beautiful than I remember, smaller than it was, owing to erosion. Truly spectacular beach and surrounding foot and bike paths. Three seals were playing so close to shore I thought they'd join in with the kids! It's a rare... More

You definitely don't want to miss Marconi Beach on the National Seashore! When you get to the bottom of the lengthy steps leading to the beach, set your your stuff and start walking. You'll find pristine beach, huge sand cliffs, and tranquility. Today, we saw many seals too. You won't be disappointed to spend a day or two here!

A lovely stretch of sandy beach with the north Atlantic providing ever-changing seas. Accessed via wooden steps but once on the beach there is plenty of space. People were surfing and paddle surfing. Plenty of parking.

Never have I been to a beach where you can see deals in the water lol. It sounds crazy I know, and I've been to a lot of places. I just though that was the coolest thing. The views are amazing and the water is ice cold.

Mile high sand dunes and pounding Atlantic green/grey surf make this beach one of the most beautiful on Cape Cod. We watched as harbor seals spent a leisurely afternoon dining on bait fish not 10 feet from shore. The drawback is not to go in the water when they are around - although while we were there the water was... More

Pretty beach. The parking lot is expansive with walkways for pedestrians. There are restrooms and showers/changing rooms. Although there are a lot of stairs down to the beach, they are easy going.

As senior citizens, we appreciate that our Senior Pass gives us free parking and access to the beach. It's a family friendly beach with other activities besides swimming, such as hiking and seeing the Marconi Station. The beach is wide and very clean. We enjoy the fact that there aren't blaring radios and loud groups of people that gather there.... More
