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.

Great beach the water is super clean and great for a swim..
The stairs are 10000% awful. Up or down. Very hard for anyone or any age to go up and down. There has to be better more gentle solutions.

I think some consultations with (civil?) Engineer firms could come to a better solution.
