My daughter enjoyed the surfing, and I enjoyed the beach. Surf lessons and boards are available right there. We loved the waves and the gentle slope of the soft sand. Nice family beach, although some good wave action. As with all the beaches I visited in Nantucket, free parking and life guards attending.

Cisco and the string of beaches along the stretch are a hit with surfers. In the summer they run a surf school and rentals

Cisco Beach is a nice sandy beach and a great spot for surfing, boogie-boarding, and body surfing. Waves were consistently 4+ feet. Kids under 12 may have a tough time with the undertow though so be careful. Beach also got a bit crowded after noon so not much room to do any sports activities on the beach.

went twice on my last trip with a 4 mile bike ride from town. the beach is stunning and clean but the water is cold, the sand in the water is not foot friendly and the waves were killer. a winner of a beach for those who surf!

Fun beach, good waves. Not as secluded as some other Nantucket beaches. This was a great place to hang out for a few hours before we went to the brewery.

With its very own surf school where you can take a lesson, rent a board or wetsuit Cisco beach is what Nantucket is all about. At the end of the road w a new bike path that ends right at the beach, Cisco has parking great sand, lifeguard stand and not much else. Don't expect restaurant, there isn't one or... More

Great spot if you want to be around other families, dogs, and surfers for the day. It's definitely the busiest and most active beaches I've experiences on the island. Much different than our small private beach on Sconset. Lot's of great waves!

Best part of going to Cisco is stopping at Bartett Farm for lunch and the Cisco Brewery after the beach for a beer.

We rode our bikes from town to this beach in about 25 minutes - it is not very wide - but naturally beautiful.
