Good for surfing

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!

Fun to go watch the surfers or just take a long walk with the dogs. Little bit of a slant to the beach, so it's a good workout. You can also walk forever down the beach and then return via the packed dirt road which meanders along the beautiful houses in the area.

Raining hard when I got here but great waves and several people surfing quite happily. There is a small place on the right of this dead-end road when you can park. I did not see any sign of bathroom etc. but parking is free,

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.
