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.

  • We went one day when the tail end of a hurricane was blowing in. There was a rip tide warning and the talented lifeguards made several saves before closing down part of the beach as the tide came in. ...  more »
  • Perfection of beauty, surf...Often a breeze. Water is current-full and requires strength. It's chilly. But beautiful. Dunes are like cliffs. Expect steps.  more »
  • I went to visit Marconi Beach one morning in November to see a sunrise. Instead it was overcast but with expansive viewing. There was a couple of surfers and paddle boarders with the occasional seals ...  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.
