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.

  • Another of the Virgin beaches of the area extremely well preserved. Also has the historical aspect (from there its name) as being the place of the first intercontinental transmission wireless

  • Beach made famous by the experiment of Guglielmo Marconi, huge, if you are lucky if they see seals, suction cup and clean. Well worth the detour.

  • 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!
  • 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.
