we first visited Jetties Beach which has very calm waters, but a much better area to spread out and a flat sunbathing beach, with a fairly decent restaurant and bathroom. Cisco was very crowded and had a steep slope to it.

This is a must if you want to see surfers up and at it. So fun to sit in the sand and watch all of the surfers take in the waves! A great place for families that want a bit of boogie boarding or surfing....More

our favorite beach for the last 21 years, great surfing, boogie boarding, and body surfing. Has a bathroom, and food concession trucks come there. Sometimes crowded, on the new bike path, and close to the farm.

Probably my favorite beach on Nantucket, just because of the beauty alone. No facilities or food, but love to go for walks on the beach, especially during the quiet season.

Great view, great access, great waves. Bike trail goes all the way to the beach. Lots of people,were there, but there was no problem finding a place to settle.

Nice bike ride out to Cisco. Although was generally sunny, too windy to enjoy the beach. The kite surfers were loving it, though!
