We walked this beach but didn't swim here. There were people in the water, no lifeguards. The beach and the water looked clean. Small parking lot.

There is nothing on the island that does not make me very happy. This is a wonderful place. The sunsets, the moonlight, winter, summer, spring or fall ............go there!

This is the beach to go to for surfing while on Nantucket! Beautiful stretch of soft, sandy beach with good to great surf, depending on the weather. Lifeguards and surf gear rental both present. We will be going back again, and again!
