This is the beach to go to for surfing while on Nantucket! Beautiful stretch of soft, sandy beach with good to great surf, depending on the weather. Lifeguards and surf gear rental both present. We will be going back again, and again!

Loved this beach - waves were big and the beach great. It does not have food or shower facilities but does have the surf school. Even if you are not interested in learning to surf - it is great to watch!

Its difficult to review Cisco as it is a big beach ranging from crowed sections to miles of deserted beach for those with local knowledge and 4 wheel drive capability...It's on the rough side of the island and the surf can be challenging..This side this is one of the warmer water beaches as it is closer to the Gulf Stream.All...

We rode our bikes here several times, and although we didn't stick close to the lifeguarded area, did enjoy the wide expanse of beach with few people (this was prior to Labor Day!). Having portable facilities that were as clean as I've ever seen them was very helpful. Explore around here- the paths that lead along/above the beach are interesting,... More

Cisco Beach was our favorite! Great waves, lots of room for frisbee and crystal clear water. Relatively easy bike ride and conveniently on the way to get to the Cisco Brewery. The Brewery is a must stop!

This beach is where you go to surf or take lessons at the surf school. Nice sand, great waves but prone to rip currents so pay attention. The lifeguards here are in great shape. A lovely ride from town by car or on the bike path and you can stop at the Cisco Brewery on your way back to town.

nice waves and people were surfing and paddle boarding. Not great for younger kids because of the heavy current

Great surf and swimming..in clear, warm water. Much less sea-weedy than Surfside and other beaches. Uncrowded, even in late August! Not the best for small children/toddlers as surf can really knock you down.
