A beautiful fun beach. Lot's of sand to walk all along. It does however get crowded sometimes but it's still a fun place to go and walk along the beach while seals play in the waves around you.

Perfection of beauty, surf...Often a breeze. Water is current-full and requires strength. It's chilly. But beautiful. Dunes are like cliffs. Expect steps.

Top of cliff on the beach is thrilling when you consider the history, and a nice place to stand in any case, though most of the original location has been washed away, as happens. But equally thrilling is a walk through the cedar swamp behind...More

Wanted to stop by and see how Marconi was after storm damage from earlier and recent repairs. Stairs are now directly behind dressing rooms. Nicely redone. Noticed quite a few Seals swimming by throughout our stay - on a very quiet day with few (human)...More

Wow what a stunning beach ! Came her with my wife whilst on the Cape in fall and it was a great experience. Beautiful golden sand and scenery. We both loved watching the Sailboarding from the beach. A must if on the Cape !

This is the location of Marconi's famous transmissions, but there isn't much to see, except a few display boards explaining the history of the sight. Worth a quick stop.

There is no place on the beach site itself to rent equipment. The main road that goes through Cape Cod, all the way up to Provincetown definitely has businesses for all that. I don't know any price information.
