Beaches Galore!

In addition to beaches that are nearby The Nantucket Hotel, Brant Point, Children’s and Jetties, Nantucket has numerous other beautiful beaches. All can be easily reached by bicycle and some can also be reached by NRTA WAVE shuttle bus. Buses usually run every 30 minutes and can carry two bicycles if you wish to ride one way to the beach and return by bus.

Brant Point

An easy walk or bike ride from the hotel, this beach is located at the end of our street, Easton Street. This scenic beach features Brant Point Lighthouse and is a pleasant spot to sit and watch the boats rounding the point. If you wish to swim at the beach there is no lifeguard and a strong current – so experienced swimmers only.

Cisco Beach

A four-mile bike ride to the end of Hummock Pond Road, Cisco Beach is known for its heavy surf. There are lifeguards on duty and on-site parking. A new bike path is planned to Cisco Beach; in the meantime, the road to this beach can be busy with traffic so families are cautioned.

Dionis Beach

Dionis Beach is three miles by bike path from The Nantucket Hotel. This beach is sheltered by dunes and offers calm waters for swimming, so it’s safe for children. There are lifeguards on duty, restrooms, parking, and showers.

Madaket Beach

Madaket Beach is as far west as you can go on Nantucket! Regular NRTA WAVE shuttle bus service operates from in front of The Nantucket Hotel to Madaket or enjoy a 5.5-mile bike ride on a scenic, paved bike path. Heavy surf. Food available nearby. Famous for viewing sunsets. There is a lifeguard and restrooms.

Siasconset Beaches

Regular NRTA WAVE shuttle service is available to ‘Sconset or enjoy an eight-mile ride with six miles of it on a paved bike path. Surf can be heavy. Food and restrooms are available in the nearby village of ‘Sconset. There is a lifeguard, restrooms and parking.

Surfside Beach

Located at the end of Surfside Road, a 2.2-mile ride on the paved bike path or reachable via the NRTA WAVE shuttle bus during the summer. This is a good beach for families and is ideal for picnics, kite flying, beach games, and surfcasting after 5:00 p.m. Surf can be heavy at this beach. Beach-accessible wheelchairs are available. There is a lifeguard, phone, restrooms, food, parking, equipment rentals, and showers and all are handicap accessible.
