Marconi Beach, Massachusetts
Closest major city: Boston (100 miles)
Located along Cape Cod’s Atlantic shoreline, Marconi Beach is part of the Cape Cod National Seashore, which President Kennedy designated as a protected natural environment. A steep sand cliff behind the beach acts as a sound buffer and helps to amplify the natural sonic environment. Go early in the morning to hear the gray seals bark as they feed and play accompanied by the sound of the waves crashing against the beach.
