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.

Had a great time here with friends. Beautiful sand and beach. There weren't a lot of people in June, but I am unsure what it is like other times. Really able to relax and enjoy.

Just how you would imagine a Nantucket beach - a nice spot to sit and watch sea lions and enjoy a sandwich from the nearby Bartlett Farms - an easy bike ride along the paths and dirt roads. Later in the summer it gets crowded, but not like a regular east coast beach where people are on top of one... More

I have been visiting this beach since then, and it's amazing how the land line has shifted just as predicted all those years ago. It was a lot of fun watching the seals play in the surf with no one to bother them.

We rode our bikes out to Cisco Beach, stopping at Bartlett Farm for sandwiches, and Cisco Brewers for a beverage. The ride is an easy one, with bike path much of the way. Cisco Beach has great parking, if you drive, and plenty of bike racks. Great surf beach!

First visit to Cisco Beach, mainly for photos of the sunset as it was close to the house we had rented. DId not go into the water but the beach looked inviting.
