Marconi Beach, Wellfleet

4.6
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. Watching young families with infants toddlers school age kids and strollers coolers umbrellas toys towels etc trying to go down and up was painful. And painful physically for the rest of us. I think some consultations with (civil?) Engineer firms could come to a better solution.
