Take a $3 ride from town (singles only!) to Sconset... then the adventure begins! Try to find the entrance to the bluff walk. If you’re not confused, you’re going the wrong way! Once you find it, it’s as charming as charming gets. Beautiful ocean views...More

Yes tricky to find the start - don’t be fooled and go down the path at the beginning- the walk is effectively through backyards of abutting properties. We took this as the walk to Sankaty light. Very beautiful and we had a decent breeze to...More

Our family did the bike ride from town, around 10ish miles one way and took the scenic route. Rode Poulpis Rd to Sconset, chained our bikes and headed for the path. We couldn't find it. Went back, grabbed a sandwich (another review) and looked again...More

My husband and I rode bikes out to Sconset and then took this walk at the suggestion of Jane at Nantucket Visitor Services (definitely worth stopping there to get the lay of the land on your arrival, Jane was great!) If you have ever done...More

Short bus ride out there for $3 from middle of town. Up and close views of the houses and bluff. Someone told me it took them 1 hr. to do the whole thing there and back, but that's not verified. Eat at the Summer House.

Make sure you get on the right path. Once you do, it is a joy to behold the sights! One of the highlights of the island

We decided this was a bit long to bike to so we took the bus to the Beach. It took asking a couple of people for directions but we found our way to the start of the bluff walk. It’s basically through a series of...More

We were told of this bluff walk by a local person in town. She suggested that if you just want to go for a quiet, scenic walk and look over the bluff to see the ocean and beach on one side and the houses on...More

This walk is well worth it! It's a little tricky to find the start of it in town but then you walk between grand houses and the ocean. At the end you can walk on the road to reach the lighthouse. Recommended!
