Everyone enjoyed the waves and beauty of this beach. It helped that it was only a 5 to 10 minute drive (great for kids) [Vacation Rental ID 5392]

Easy car access without the need to shuttle and the beach was great with good waves and no or little rocks.

Loved the dunes and unspoiled geography - reminds me of Scotland.

This National Seashore beach (Marconi) is long, with lots of soft sand, lifeguards, surf, room to walk the beach, and tons of parking. The Federal Gov't does charge for parking. HINT: If you are 62 or older, get a LIFETIME pass, good at all National Parks, National Forests, National Campgrounds, for only $10. A one day parking fee is normally $20. What a deal!!

Marconi Beach has a raw, unspoiled coastline - just ocean and dunes. My family and I have been coming to this beach for over 20 years, and it never ceases to take my breath away.

The waves at Marconi are incredible. Plan your trip around the tides. It's best at low tide when are great sand bars and tide pools.

Great at low tide--long low waves for older kids and grown ups to boogie board, body surf or surf and large shallow trench for little ones to play in.

Especially at low tide. Marconi with its long low tide shelf is better for those who enjoy long walks. The stairs to the beach are better maintained and sectioned with more rest areas for the up & down. The bathroom, shower and changing facilities are the best on the cape in my opinion. We went in Sept; it is probably a lot more crowded on prime summer days. For best results note the moon and the tides.

Dunes were great to see! Waves were really good for body surfing, sandy bottom. People were friendly. National Seashore. We drove there twice.

We love how breathtaking the beach is as you walk down the stairs and see the 200 ft dunes. The beach is never that crowded and going into the water is a pleasure.
