We just came from Grand Cayman's 7 miles beach and not quite sure how to rate this Beach. Sand is coarse and with all the shells not too pleasant to walk on. Sea weeds on the water edge. Not nice to walk long distances barefooted. Just buy tickets to Grand Cayman or Turks and Caicos and find out how the 5 star beaches look like.

Jetties is conveniently located, has the best amenities of any Nantucket beach, and has a nice playground area and fun tide pooling opportunities to keep the kids busy.

When I look for a beach, though, I look for sand, surf, and sights.

Jetties' medium-to-coarse sand is nothing to write home about, there is no surf (being a bay-side beach), and it isn't particularly beautiful to me. While you may get good glimpses of sailors and kite surfers doing their thing, enjoy the convenience of the OK restaurant, or have fun playing ball on the wide expanse of sand, I would trade Jetties for any of the south-facing beaches any day of the week.

Average beach thats packed full of families vacationing. This beach has little to no waves or currents, so I take it these are factors in which families choose this beach. Also it is a great place to watch the ferries and passing boats. As far as the beach it's self, its quite rocky with shells all over, not the most pretty on the island but it does get better the ore you walk towards steps beach.

Great for kids especially at low tide. Nice changing facilities and good restaurant right on the beach.

Perfect locatiojn on the beach with families, not a smart restuarant but a relaxed location to grab a beer and some food whilst at the beach. Shorts and flip flops kind of sums it up!
