Nantucket has alot of beaches and that is the amazing thing about Nantucket, amongst othe things. but I love surfside beach because it has a proper bathroom and a little snack bar. It even rents umbrellas and chairs, but the one thing I didn't like was that we rented the chairs and there was a 20.00 deposit which you got... More

The name says it all -- this is an ocean beach with real surf. If you want to avoid the crowds on a hot summer day it's easy to just keep walking until you find a spot that suits you. The undertow is strong so make sure you watch the kids, but they will have a ball getting tossed in... More

We went in mid May which is the best time to go because no one is there... I mean no one else was there! This was great for the fiance and I because we could just sit, relax, and enjoy being in this great place together. This took us about 1 hour to bike to because we got lost initially!... More

I have vacationed on Nantucket for 20+ years and feel that Surfside and Madaket beaches are the best. If you happen to visit when a storm has passed off the coast you may be lucky enough to find great body surfing waves at Surfside. At other times the surf is generally calm and the beach is fun to walk. It... More

This beach is full of positive energy, great people, great view. Probably the best mix of sand - waves.

We travelled at a quiet time but loved walking here...luckily we had sunshine. It is unspoilt and when we went very peaceful and quiet and scenic.

It was October so a little cold to be out on the sand. We sat in the car for an hour or so and just enjoyed the view at Surfside.

Always enjoy this beach - it is rarely crowded and offers a great expanse for long walks. Waves can be large but the swimming is fun - not far from the bike path which makes it easily accessible.
