What makes Marconi Beach unique?

Marconi Beach is an incredibly large Cape Cod Beach with outstanding facilities, a large parking lot, lifeguards in season, a wide beach, and miles of beach for long walks with no houses in sight. This beach is a keystone property of the Cape Cod National Seashore. There are public restrooms and bathhouses. The beach is easily accessible from the Cape Cod Rail Trail and Route 6 in Wellfleet.

The National Park Service does a great job of maintaining the facilities here. The parking lot, the stairs, the restrooms and the bathhouse are in great shape.

The National Park Service offers great deals like:

  • Free Annual Passes for active military members and dependents
