sconset beach is at the southern part of nantucket. there's not much in sconset but worth the trip. walk by the rose covered cottages or down the shell streets. t's called sconset village.....our post office, a liquor store that is referred by locals as the "book store", claudette's restaurant, sconset cafe and a small market. claudette's sandwiches are made to order. sandwiches are big and probably one of the best deals on the island for $10....or if your out and about in the morning - muffins, lemon cake (his moms recipe from years ago) coffee and egg sandwiches are available. you can sit on the deck and people watch or get it to go and walk down the street to sconset beach. another review talked about seaweed........seaweed depends on storms, wind, etc....so there's not always seaweed. parking is limited, bike racks are available - it's a 7 mile bike trip from town and bus service drops you in the village. our buses also have bike racks, so if your exhausted by the time your day at the beach ends, hop on the bus and head back to town for $1. there are no public rest rooms at the beach but there is a public rest room 1 street down from the village.

Lunch at the Summerhouse is awesome particularly after a bike ride from town or after a morning at the beach

With the new shuttle bus service, you can reach most of the beaches on Nantucket for $2 pp each way making it easy and affordable. Parking is a premium so the shuttle is great. There is a tiny village here with a general store, public restrooms, and not much else. Stroll along the fishing shack areas with the nice gardens, see the sundial clock, head to the beach. Very clean and beautiful.

When we were there, the water was full of seaweed and the waves were wierd. Cisco Beach is much better and so is Jetties. Love Siasconset...just not there beach (unless you are just going to sit out and sun - then it's fine.
