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!!
