I've been wanting to make it down to the beach for sunrise everytime we come here and we finally did! I definitely suggest doing it. We got down there a few minutes before 6. Stayed down there for about 20 mins. What a site!!

Gone are the old honky tonk arcades like in Revere Beach of old, but the strip still has one big arcade. The small restaurants along the strip are OK for fish and chips and chowda, but my main attraction is the beach. Best clear, cold water around, and little chance of sharks, especially when the water is 60 degrees or... More

The Nantasket Beach Resort has a great eatery with reasonable prices and great view. Schooners is very reasonable and located on the main strip. To Dine has great Lebonese and Greek deli choices located in the Kenberma section. The Beach is less than a five minute drive from any where in town with fourteen miles of water front on the...

Clean beach, smooth sand, shallow water, relatively mild waves, no seaweed, lots of families and couples, easy to park (for a fee, I paid $ 10, dirt lot). There was some large puddles of sea water left as the tide receded, where kids could safely play. Some small businesses and restaurants in walking distance. Cannot wish for better beach. Look...

Unlike some other reviewers, I loved Nantasket Beach! The water is calm and shallow so my young kids loved to play in the sand and go in the water. The water was not too cold this Summer. They have small restaurants across the street for snacks. The only downside was that parking can be expensive and it seemed like the... More

Traveled to this beach for a day and was delighted with the beautiful setting. The beach was perfect once the tide receded. Gentle waves, clear water which was perfect for all of the family. There is an outdoor shower, and a changing room. Forgot the name of the ice cream on the boardwalk but it was delicious, as they claim.... More

So we find the perfect spot and set up our towels and gear. Moments later, the waves come crashing in....so we move back several yards, and set up our towels and gear. Moments later, the waves come crashing in. We did this three times! The kids had a BLAST and so did we! Be patient in search of parking, but... More

Looking for a nice long stretch of beach with public amenities fairly close to Boston? Try Nantasket Beach! It's easy to see why this beach has such a long history of being a summer favorite. There's a boardwalk for those who may not want to get too sandy, and it's got plenty of benches and picnic tables, making it nice... More

I think this would be the perfect beach for families with young children. The waves are very gentle and the water shallow for a long way out. There are tide pools during the low tide times that are perfect for the youngest children to play in. The sand is perfect for sand castle building. Nice family atmosphere, bathrooms close by...

Had a good time at this beach. Seemed to be the best in front of our hotel right in the middle, the start and ends looked very packed while the middle was perfect
