we first visited Jetties Beach which has very calm waters, but a much better area to spread out and a flat sunbathing beach, with a fairly decent restaurant and bathroom. Cisco was very crowded and had a steep slope to it.

This is a must if you want to see surfers up and at it. So fun to sit in the sand and watch all of the surfers take in the waves! A great place for families that want a bit of boogie boarding or surfing....More

This is a really great beach. It's close to the town/harbor. We road bikes there, took maybe 10 minutes. There are bike racks to look up your ride. Also, there are shuttle buses, or one can drive. Most everyone drops their shows at the edge...More

This beach is awesome! Smallish, but has nice waves and a mellow vibe. If you are worried about the surf, speak with the Lifeguards. They are very knowledgeable about the conditions and can address any concerns you may have about the conditions that day. Marcus...More

our favorite beach for the last 21 years, great surfing, boogie boarding, and body surfing. Has a bathroom, and food concession trucks come there. Sometimes crowded, on the new bike path, and close to the farm.

Probably my favorite beach on Nantucket, just because of the beauty alone. No facilities or food, but love to go for walks on the beach, especially during the quiet season.
