Possibly the best thing about this beach is that Millie's is right there. The other incredible thing is that just a short bike ride or walk away is access to smith's point which is possible the most gorgeous beach on Nantucket.

The Wave bus stops there, and there is a wonderful restaurant - Millie's- which also has a sandwich shop and small market. It was not crowded on a sunny Tuesday in July. Enough waves to be fun, but not dangerous. Lifeguards, bathrooms, seals, and nice sand. No shells and bathrooms are ports lets, no showers.

... it just is. Not the widest beach, certainly. But it has a true end-of-the-road feeling, being that it's on the far southwest point of the island. Millie's restaurant and market are a short walk from the beach. Good food and drink -- a nice break from the sun, when needed. Though we didn't quite make it to sunset, on either visit, we could see how it would be treat. A do-able bike ride from Nantucket town. Nice big waves on both days we visited.

A clean beach with great waves and a nice restaurant nearby. Don't be surprised if you see seals coming out of the water in a secluded area. it is their beach too!

Pet-friendly spot to enjoy beautiful sunsets. The WAVE transit bus takes you there from downtown (and other stops enroute) and is also pet friendly!
