“Good for fishing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Good for fishing not so good for swimming, a lot of seaweed and strong rip current when the tide is running. This is the foggy side of the island.

“Beautiful Sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

This is a great place to watch the sunset. There is a restaurant called Millies right near here. Great to be able to eat and than take a quick stroll to watch the sunset.

“Unique and Picturesque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We rented a jeep and headed out to our favorite spot -- S'conset. The walk along the crushed shell pathways that overlook the sea are most charming when the roses are blooming and cover the walls and sides of the charming cottages. This trip we enjoyed the cooler weather of September and saw only the last roses of the season. The local sandwich shop has the best sandwiches anywhere. You can also rent a bike and see the area from that perspective. If money is not an issue, rent one of the cottages at the Summer House. My friends love the coffee at the general store and simply sit on the porch to watch the people. do note that many places begin to shut down for the season, beginning in September. Nantucket can be magical -- the walking and biking are priceless.

“Great little beach in a quaint village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

There is limited parking, but the beach is fabulous. Lots of sand, open space and surf. Dogs allowed!
