Marconi Beach – South Wellfleet
The name “Marconi Beach” is from the famous Italian inventor, Marconi. From Marconi Station Site, he successfully completed the first transatlantic wireless communication between the U.S. and England in 1903.
The outer beach is famous for its then steep, forty-foot sand cliff located behind it.
