Like Jetties Beach, Surfside Beach is considered a great family destination with all the fixings for a great beach day, including some decent surf. Lifeguards, restrooms, public phone, parking and a food stand are amongst the amenities found at Surfside. If you don't have your own car on the Island, you can take the Nantucket Regional Transit Authority (NRTA) shuttle bus from town or bike along the 3 mile Surfside Bike Path directly to the beach.
I think Surfside Beach is a great place to go with a bunch of friends to go surfing and just "chill" in the water (the water is really cold!). Its also a fun place to go when it really windy just to watch the huge waves splash on the beach. But it is not a good place to go with children or people who arnt strong swimmers. I was taken under by the waves myself several times when I was younger. So i wouldent recomend bringing children.
