Not as well known as other Nantucket beaches, and not quite as accessible, it is a nice wide beach with not too much vehicle and people traffic. It is a good fishing spot (and next to "Fishermen's Beach") and is worth a trip if you find neighboring Surfside Beach a little too busy.

We've avoided the past few times we visited the island because the crowds have been pretty rowdy (we've read in the local news that alcohol may be the reason) - but to drive our Range Rover right on and to a spot to hang out, swim and sun is one of our favorite things to do on ACK. So if... More

The most notorious of the drive on beaches in nantucket . You best get there before Noon most days in peak season or the entire 1/4 mile stretch is sold out in terms of parking on beach . Everybody's teenaged kid goes here to find the jeep parked on beach with the beers and loud music . Once we saw... More

This was our favorite beach. Plenty of parking, not crowded, and clean water. This was a good choice for a quiet beach. Small waves, and easy swimming.

One of the best surf beaches on Nantucket. A relatively shallow sandbank allows decent waves to roll into shore. The beach can get busy in summer. The East side of the beach has a 4wd parking along the beach. Not an area you want to visit if you are not in a 4wd.

You really need a 4WD and beach permit to get there, but you drive right up to the ocean and open you tailgate. The surf is usually good and it has become quite popular in more recent years. No small wonder because the entire beach and ocean floor is pure, clean, silky sand. While it may be crowded, we have... More

We went to the 4wd section and loved this beach. Few rocks, fun surf, 70 degrees F, soft sand. It is busy on the weekends and close to the airport so jets do fly somewhat frequently over your head on a Sunday but it wasn't bad.

We come here every year and rive our car on the beach. For those that like a classic beach with waves and lots of action this beach is for you. If you are a plane buff you will see planes taking off and landing all day long. Surprised however that the town doesn't do a better job at picking up... More

In this beach you will find people of all ages , but it is the meeting point for young people. The Surfist love this beach. You can reach the beach by car with permission.
