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.
