We rented bikes downtown and came out to surfside. Once you get out of the small streets of downtown Nantucket the bike paths are great! It is a quick ride to surfside, but it was very relaxing in May before everyone comes to Nantucket. The waves are quite large here, so don't think it is a swimming beach. It might be nice in the summer, but it was on the cold side temperature wise when we visited in May.

This beach is never as busy as some other beaches. On some days, the waves are big so if you have little kids, you might consider the part under the kiosk, the western part is way less busy but often rough. We saw whales here in June!

The beach itself is beautiful and a great place to spend an afternoon. The snack shack is good, but it is pretty expensive. Note that adding any extras on wraps/sandwiches will cost you. The bathroom/shower/changing area is great and you can rent chairs and umbrellas as well.

Surfside is our go-to Nantucket beach. It's beautiful (as they all are!), and convenient . . . parking, snack bar, chair and umbrella rentals, changing rooms . . . makes it super easy to enjoy a fabulous beach day!
