This site is gorgeous in the Spring. I visited with my fiance in the late afternoon, and it was chilly, peaceful, and entirely devoid of other visitors. The cliffs and the sound of the ocean are beautiful. Aside from the natural beauty of the site, the remains of Marconi's towers are fascinating. There are several signs with historic information, even if there are no guides to help. On a different note, this site is so difficult to find! We had to use our GPS and just trust that we were indeed going the right way. You will pass by a lot of houses in a residential area before you arrive.
It's small but extremely significant to telecommunications history. Guides were wonderful and approached visitors to offer short tours and offer their expertise. Beautiful view. We did the Miners Museum 8km away in the morning, had lunch, then did Marconi. Hit the Fossil Centre after lunch, all at a nice easy pace.
Very educational stop. Nice views. Learned lots on Marconi's scientific contributions.
Small but very well executed. Knowledgeable staff.
Small exhibition but important site
