This is a beautiful, quiet beach with rolling waves. Due east is Portugal! We stayed in a cottage a few hundred feet from the beach and could hear the waves crashing 24 hours a day. Lovely!

So beautiful! Kids had a wonderful time! We will visit again next time we hit Nantucket. We visited the summer house's beachside bistro for lunch to enjoy the view and great lobster rolls!

Cute village town. We got sandwiches and spent a few hours at beach. The surf wasn't too rough. The shore line is very rocky. The best part of the day were the seals popping their heads up very close to shore.
