This beach is one of our favorite Nantucket beaches. Although it can be quite crowded, it is lovely and often clear of seaweed. The ocean is often a lovely color and very clear. Some amenities at this beach, but nice to pack your own lunch and cooler and enjoy!

Cycled to this beach which was great fun over some sandy roads. The beach itself was clean and looked beautiful, you could see for miles. The water of the Northern Atlantic was as you'd expect freezing

Great beach with a heavy surf and good waves...lots of kids boogie boarding and surfing in the waves! Only draw back it the snack bar is a bit of a trek back up the path but worth it for they delicious food!

The size of the horizon, the sound of the sea and good swimming in calm weather. It's an easy walk from the car park and so very popular.

Great family beach, ride your bike from town or take the shuttle. There are chairs and umbrellas available to rent. The snack shack has a crabby patty everyone will love!

Clean beach, great views, nice facilities with a snack bar. We saw several seals, but they never got close to us. Would recommend visiting this beach.

This was really nice beach. It was close to the airport so you can sit and watch all the planes coming in. Had a little trouble with crabs biting my feet in the water . Had to keep my feet up. Other than that it was a great beach .
