Like all the beaches on the National Seashore, Marconi is impeccably maintained. There is always room to park in the oversized lot, but sometimes the trek to the sand seems like a walk in the Sahara, but it's worth it once your feet are caressed...More

I am told it can be quite busy in the high season but no matter when you go there is the sea and miles of unspoiled beach to walk. A little surfing was to be had in mid September. Just a beautiful place.

But I'm sure that's because it's Sept 20. It almost felt like an abandoned area. There's not much there, but they do have a beach house to rinse your feet. We were able to see a few seals so that made my day. They were...More

We arrived in the mid afternoon and walked for at least 4 miles. very peaceful and the sand was perfect to walk on. Not many people if any where we walked. Saw many seals.

It's part of The National Seashore and exactly what you would expect a Cape Cod ocean beach to be! Picturesque dunes and the Atlantic! Parking is ample but it's best to get there early. There's no charge after Labor Day but the lifeguards are absent...More

This was a busy beach but not overcrowded. There were plenty of restrooms and changing rooms, plus beach showers.

A wonderful beach, Seal watching abounds! An occasional Shark shows up. Not a beach for children to swim in. Crowds! Good snack shack. Nice Bathrooms. Friendly Rangers. Nice day @ the beach!

We thoroughly enjoyed a picture perfect day at this gorgeous beach. Big cliffs and big waves make it dramatic. Water was chilly but fine once we got in... About 65 degrees. Very smooth sand. We arrived about 9 am on a Monday and practically had...More

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.
