This is a beach with a bit of everything within walking distance from Town. There are lifeguards, restrooms, and a concession stand with food and drinks and public phones. Being on the Nantucket Sound, the surf is mild and many families come to enjoy the beauty and safety of this beach. There is also a playground and volleyball net. The NRTA shuttle runs a beach loop to Surfside and Jetties Beach from June 15 until Labor Day.
We decided to try it but we left. We came to Nantucket to get away from the crowds. It was close to the bed and breakfast inn where we stayed, but it was very crowded. We were told by the innkeeper to find other beaches that are less known and more private and we were glad we did. A plus is that you can buy food and drinks here.
Great place lots of fun for kids and adults.
Good food , clean bathrooms,
close to town. Has a beach store with incredibly affordable being at the beach. It also has showers and changing rooms. Town bus also runs there. Playground and tennis courts and community sailing open to public and very affordable. Also you can rent chairs which was really helpful and the people who run the place have been there for years and keep the place clean and friendly.
