Easily accessible beach a short car ride (or moderate walk) from town. We went in November on a 44 degree day - bundled up for a gorgeous sunset - beautiful shells - a nice walk with my husband and dog! The restaurant was closed but we knew that before we went. Recommend!

This beach is my favorite to go to in Nantucket. I love that they have a restaurant right on the beach, very convenient! The food there is good but my favorite part is the live music! Such an amazing setting!

This is our favorite beach in the Island aside from the Children's beach, this is the closest from the Juice Bar, just walk straight, 10 minutes then voila, white sand and clean area for public use.

Jetties Beach is close to town, and ideal for those who do not enjoy heavy surf that the other Island beaches have. It is on the Nantucket Sound side of the Island and has wavelets and warmer water than the other beaches. It also has a long walkway down to the water, making it wheelchair accessible. Lastly, there is a... More

We spent the morning here with our 18 mo old son. We were the only ones around. We enjoyed the playground, a walk on the beach and a picnic lunch. Definitely recommended.

We were here off-season in September so the beach was empty but I am sure it is full of families in the summer. There is a playground for kids. The water is not too deep and there are lots of sand bars so you can go out a long way. The water was fairly warm and there were no waves.... More

This beach has the most services on ACK. Great for kids. Try the side by the playground -- quieter than the main section of the beach. Food at restaurant is really good. You can rent chairs here as well which is convenient.

This a great beach to relax and sun while watching the ferries come and go from town. The water is crystal clear with a light chop for all to enjoy to include the elderly. There are plenty of sandbars so swim in water which is over your head you may have to walk, swim or shuffle out a few hundred... More

A beautiful spot on Nantucket! We biked a couple miles with our kids and beach chairs on our backs and arrived to the gorgeous sights of clean sand beach and a calm blue ocean. After a day of fun that includes a playground and a great sandbar in the ocean, snacks beckoned from the restaurant on the beach. Shuck a... More
