Very close to town and a short walk. Wonderful little beach and watch the ferries come in or fish off the beach. One of the must visits if you are on the island and like light houses.

This is a beautiful spot, it is so peaceful and quiet. The beach is impeccable and very clean. It was so nice just to sit, read and listen to the water.

Cape Air flight in a twin prop 8 seater was fun. I got to sit in the co-pilot seat and watch the waves and see the islands at 5,000 feet. Not a cloud in the sky or a bump in the road. Great way to...More

Seeing this lighthouse on the ferry was the best part of this lighthouse. Going to see it in person was just okay.

Must visit if you come Photo opportunity!!! You must throw in a penny when rounding the lighthouse on the boat. It means a safe journey and a wish to return to Nantucket

This little pint sized wonder is near the main dock in Nantucket and was a short bike ride from the bike rental shops.

Unsure about that but made us wonder as well. It would make an excellent B&B or other type rental. What a location.
