Jetties Beach is a nice place. The proximity to town makes this a go to place. We rode our bikes here and locked them up in the bike racks. The blue carpet pathway up to the beach is helpful. The sand is soft and fun...More

Sandbars (real and restaurant) and beach! This is a great beach, especially if you have small children that don't like waves. Calm, clear water and the sandbar about 100 yards out is fun to go out to. Water height to get there changes with the...More

Jetties is a clean beach where you can watch the ferries and other boats come in and out of the harbor. Convenient to have bathrooms and restaurant on site. Beware: bathrooms only have hot water so can't get cold water for anything. Like the mat...More

Jetties is the best family beach on the island. It has a sandbar that keeps the shoreline calm and safe for the little ones. The jetties restaurant keeps the parents happy - great food & cocktails.

Sand for kids to play, restaurant close by for food - eat there or bring back to beach. Shallow and calm water that was refreshing to frolick in. You could walk a long while into the water and still be waist deep. There's a playground...More

This is a great family or couples/friends beach. The waves are small and the water is pretty calm but it's good to spend the day here since there is a food stand and actual bathrooms. This beach does get pretty crowded so get there early!

We stopped for a snack and drink with family. It's a bit pricey but friendly staff. Easy for families with young ones with the beach and playground nearby. You can sit at a table wearing a bathing suit.

With just a short walk from town, Jetties Beach was the most convenient beaches to get to. We loved the calm waters and relaxing and tranquil vista of the sail boats. We also loved the open space with few folks around.

We stopped off for a quick lunch while at Jetties Beach. We were seated on the patio and served quickly. The menu was a little expensive, but it's Nantucket and the only place near the beach so not all that unexpected. They had a decent...More
