Beach houses on Nantucket Island

New England’s summer Shangri-La

Mostly accessible by ferry, the idyllic New England island paradise of Nantucket is a famous favorite vacation destination for east coasters. Though much of the island shuts down in the colder months, Nantucket comes alive in the summer with a thriving outdoor dining scene, boutique shopping, and picturesque walks through town.

A proper visit to Nantucket includes riding the cobblestone streets on your rental bike, relaxing on the shore, chowing down on some oysters, and maybe getting out early on a sailboat.

Nantucket favorites

The whole place is only 14 miles long, so you should be able to see much of Nantucket Island during your stay!

purple lines

Sconset bluff walk

Considered Nantucket’s most picturesque scenic walk open to the public, the cliffside trail brings you past beautiful homes and fine white sand beaches, then finishes at the famous Sankaty Head Lighthouse.

Nantucket Whaling Museum

The popular museum in Nantucket Town tells the history of the whaling industry that used to power the island’s economy, and shows off a sperm whale skeleton, a massive fresnel lens, and a rooftop with views of the harbor.

Surfside Beach

One of the busiest beaches on the island, Surfside Beach on the southern shore has convenient amenities like public rentals, showers, and food kiosks, and its choppy waters are perfect for surfing when the tide is right.

Hit the road

Most travelers visiting Nantucket take a ferry from Hyannis in Cape Cod to the ferry terminal in Nantucket Town. Upon arrival, it’s easy to cruise around town on foot or by bike, but it’s best to book a car for your stay if you’re keen on exploring the whole island. This New England hot spot is quite busy in the summer season, so consider making a reservation for in-demand activities and restaurants before you go.

Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge

The Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge protects pristine osprey and sea bird habitat at the northern point of Nantucket. In addition to hiking and visiting the Great Point Lighthouse, the most popular activity in recent years is offroading in the dunes with 4x4 oversand vehicle rentals.

Cisco Brewers

The grounds of Cisco Brewers contain a vineyard, a distillery, and a brewery, where you can learn about the creation process of each type of libation. Cisco Brewers is about a 15-minute bike ride from Nantucket Town on Bartlett Farm Road.

Brant Point Light

The iconic Brant Point Light off Easton Street in Nantucket Town is still an active post used by the U.S. Coast Guard, but the grounds are free to explore. The attraction is a popular spot to take in boats floating around Nantucket Town's harbor.
