The bike trail out to Cisco is terrific. Once you get there, the beach is amazing. The day we were there the waves were very high, there were many surfers. People were swimming and catching the waves. Great time. There are some snack trucks there.

South side of the island with usually great surf. No concessions on beach, bike path right to the water. Life guard stand now and car parking at end of road as well w some porta potty. New the Cisco brewery for a quick stop on your way home!

Big waves, not crowded, very beautiful! Really great at sunset -- and if you're lucky, you'll see seals!

Surfing rentals are easily accessible. Beach is pretty and close to the brewery. Was a bit more crowded that would have preferred, but overall very peaceful and chill place.

After renting bikes for the afternoon (and a pitstop at Cisco Brewery), it was great to stumble upon this beach at the end of the bike path. Beautiful view, not overly crowded and porta-potties! Worth the trip when you're on Nantucket!

The family spent a little time on a quiet part of the beach. Incredibly clean. A spectacular view. Waves were powerful. Take little ones by the hand.

Beautiful beach, never crowded. Would not take the little ones swimming but fine for walking. Beach combing is OK but many Nantucket beaches are better for finding shells. Very small parking lot.

I love how each beach on the island has it's own uniqueness. For me with this one, it was the waves! Lovely spot for pictures.

We believe that aside from great point beach, this is the nicest beach stretch on the island. Never really very crowded, and accessible from multiple points. Go in the am, and then go get a sandwich at the farm & stop into Cisco brewery for a Whales Tales Pale Ale or two!!

Travel to the end of the road and you'll find Cisco beach. It's beautiful and we almost had it to ourselves the day we went. We rode mopeds from town - only took about 15 minutes. Definitely a great place to pack a picnic and enjoy the shore!
