We loved Jetties Beach so much we went there twice during our four day stay on Nantucket. About a mile or so walk from the center of town it is easy to pick up something to eat at one of the many town eateries and then head down to Jetties Beach for a leisurely afternoon of relaxing and reading. The surf is not rough at all as the beach is protected and in the second week of September the water was still enjoyable enough to actually fully go into, not nearly as cold as some of the other beaches on Boston’s North Shore we had been to the prior week! There are tons of shells at Jetties, great views and plenty of shoreline to walk and explore; we can easily see why this is one of Nantucket’s most popular beaches.

It's an easy walk or bike ride from town. The restaurant and bar make it a nice convenient day at the beach.

Nice and quiet. Area small between water and dunes. Quite windy. Good parking. Outhouse lavatories are available.

Wasn't too crowded in June, restrooms, food, rental chairs, etc.

Easy walk from the Beachside Hotel!

Nice environment but extremely terrible service. They not only forgot to serve but we were not given menus. I had to go remind the hostess that I was here and she was still short and rude to me. The food was fine but not worth the wait. The girl servers outfits were not kid friendly. Coke was watered down. Fries were good. Overall, food was good and service was terrible. If you really want to come, be prepared to wait.

We took a walk with the dog and went to Jetties Beach. It was not a long way to the beach and it was nice to walk on the beach - the sand was hard packed so easy to walk on. We did encounter a dead sea lion, which was interesting.

This is such a great low key spot for amazing seafood. Their happy hour is awesome with $1 oysters, you can't beat it. It's right on the beach so you get a great view too. The lobster roll is awesome as are the shrimp tacos and fried clams. The drinks are strong and yummy. Can't wait to go back!

Calm water, playground, Sandbar restaurant, and the best views...no other Nantucket beach has as much to offer as Jetties! We’ve even walked with our pup in our arms out to the sandbar at low tide...so fun!!

This is probably not the best beach in Nantucket but it was within walking distance of our hotel-so it was good enough. The beach is a lovely place to enjoy a bottle of wine and relax on a sunny day. Although mid-September, there were a few people swimming.
