My wife and I took a taxi from the ferry terminal to Madaket Beach $22 and took public bus back $3 each. I would not recommend bicycling unless you are in shape. A lot of hills. The beach is great. Beautiful sand and great waves....More

Beautiful beach and sunsets. Lots of waves. Port a potties are available and life guards. Accessible by the madaket bus, which was great. Went to Millies for an early dinner before the sunset.
