Beaches In Nantucket: The Perfect Seaside Island EscapeRugged and pristine. Sweeping and spectacular. Just a few ways to describe the picturesque beauty of New England's favorite waterfront playground. Bicycle or stroll to the easily accessible north shore beaches close to Nantucket Town, where families collect seashells and build lifetime memories alongside sand castles. Or adventure further afield to the island's south and east shores, where big surf, strong current and shifting dunes present endless photo ops and a chance to explore the treasures washed ashore by rolling waves. No matter which you choose, a day of postcard-perfect fun awaits on some of the most beautiful stretches of sand.
