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 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.
