Marconi Beach, Wellfleet

4.5
Enjoy a sweeping view of the Cape Cod Bay at Marconi Beach, gently sloping into the Atlantic Ocean. This is a popular spot for surfing, boogie boarding, and skimboarding. Animal lovers should keep their eyes peeled for seals, often spotted just off shore. Near the beach is the area's top attraction--Marconi Station, from which Italian inventor Marconi made the first successful transatlantic wireless communication from the United States.

  • This was our favorite beach so far on the Cape Cod National Seashore. There’s a lot of stairs to get down to the beach, but it’s worth it! The water was so colorful with greens and blues! We also saw ...  more »

  • Disappointed to not be able to stop by Memorial Day Weekend - stair and facility repairs must not be completed. Hopefully done before the Summer rush!  more »

  • Great sandy beach to walk on, or jump into the ocean from. If you are tired of the sun, there is a shaded trail off of the same parking lot at Marconi beach that brings you to North Atlantic Cedar Swamp Trail/boardwalk, easy to medium difficulty, and well worth the effort.
  • Beautiful outer Cape beach that has it all....beautiful views, crisp clean water, and great waves for surfing/ buggyboarding. In fact you'll find many surfers here on a warm Cape summer day. Parking gets full very quickly so be sure to come early. Pack a cooler, bring your buggy boards/ surf boards, and enjoy another gorgeous summer day on the outer Cape!
  • Breathtaking views in the night with Camp fires, Stars and Galaxies....
  • It is one of the best beaches on the North East coast. Clean sandy beach with beautiful views of the sunrise. If you are into surfing, you maybe surprised at how often you can catch good surfing waves here.
  • As beautiful as Coast Guard and Nauset Light beaches but without the crowds.
