You can find just about any type of beach you're looking for here, whether you want to surf, take a relaxing walk, or spend the day with the family. Our beaches are located on the Nantucket Sound and on the Atlantic Ocean. The calm and warm waters of the beaches located along the Sound, or the island's North Shore Beaches, are ideal for families. The South Shore Beaches along the Atlantic are perfect for surfing and body boarding.
