Went her for a view of the Atlantic surface, undisturbed from any land going east - aside Europe. When visiting this time of year (mid October) the crowds are gone, the parking lot is mostly empty (at least when we arrived around 10 am) and parking is free.
The beach is fantastic and it is a strange thing, that the next solid ground you'll bump into if you go swimming straight east is Portugal - that of cause depends on your navigational skills.
The beach requires that you're able to climb some stairs, and then you're rewarded with a fantastic view of the coast.
When we were there, the kids had a great time digging in the sand, finding crabs (mostly dead ones) and being scrutinized by a couple of very interested seals, which were swimming parallel to the coast.
I can from other pictures, see that there are horribly crowded during summer - so I include one almost without people.
Marconi beach is part of the national Seashore and absolutely worth a visit - also out of the season.
