Great beach and fun for families and couples alike! Bring your beach blanket, beach toys and food and plan on spending the whole day. A great sandy beach with warm water and many restaurants nearby too. Ample parking also.

The tide is very high mid-day so it is best to grab a spot close to the sea wall if you are staying all day. Plenty of beach in morning and late afternoon. We loved it.

This is probably the worst beach I've been to within day trip distance from Boston. $20 to park which seems standard around MA but this was a dirt lot. The beach sits close to the road and no surrounding scenery besides the ocean. It's very crowded and with lots of trash on the ground, smokers, etc made it unappealing on... More

Nice beach, my husband and I likes sitting in the rocks and swimming. It was a little crowded during the day but cleared out a lot during the evening. It was nice when the tide went out I would bring my kids back here to go swimming then.

Fun beach. Not many places to put a chair during high tide but low tide leaves lots of room. So much fun to hop on rocks, play in the sand, and search for sea creatures. Close to places to eat and shop.

Would have given four stars if the parking was cheaper and there were more food options. Went on a Saturday morning around 9:30 and the beach was already filling up. Parking was $20 across the street which we thought was high but convenient so it might be worth it. Unlike many NE beaches this one did not have too many... More

Going to Nantasket Beach is like being in a painting by Monet. The waves are crashing, the gulls are squawking, and little kids are going berserk with their plastic buckets and shovels. The water is bracing and the backdrop of Boston Light and Graves Light is appropriately salty. The wide, flat beach is good for a stroll or run, and... More

The beach was beautiful. We were watching little kids playing int he tidal pools and scaling the rocks. The life guards were nice and attentive. The beach facilities were clean.
